Droste Festival 2021 - Dark Magic

Death University (René Haustein, Jonathan Lemke, Philipp Höhning)

Video preview image

Death University is a conspiracy musical in video form. At its heart are characters who pass over a threshold and become phantoms. Inspired by William S. Burroughs’ ideas about The Third Mind, the video experiments with montage techniques. The plot of the protagonists develops from the music which, as a higher power, helps to steer the course of the video and accelerate it. As audience members, we will be drawn into a spiritual meeting: a closed room where a community sits together in a circle and receives ghostly manifestations. The metamorphosis can begin.
