A MUSE


[POST PRODUCTION 2019] Mia, a young Bosnian woman living in Hamburg (Mersiha Husagic) is offered a role in a performance recreating Yves Klein’s Anthropometries of the blue period. Excited by the opportunity, Mia accepts the role, but quickly finds herself at odds with the director, Adrian (Rares Andrici), a Romanian immigrant who uses his performers as pawns; integrating dating applications into the fabric of the performance, having his actors go on dates to discover “how to be emotionally naked.” The performers are interviewed about these experiences on camera, with video of the conversation projected on the walls during the Anthropometries recreation.

As Mia tries to balance her day-to-day life and her struggles navigating the ethical minefield of Adrian’s methodology, the film takes us back to Romania several years prior, examining Adrian’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend Bianca (Miriam Rizea), as well as a chance encounter with a Ukranian stage actress (Irina Potapenko) that influences Adrian’s view on art and life. 

The bifurcated narrative builds to an unexpected and cathartic finale where Mia, Adrian, and Bianca are connected through an emotional climax that transcends time and place.

LYING POSTURE OF A LION


[COMPLETED 2017] Starring Erica Leong, Lying Posture of a Lion is at its core, an experience in nightmarish transcendence. The experimental film traces the journey of Ulysses, a man with a nebulous past, desperate to orient himself in a world that seems not quite his own.
While blindly wandering through the Pacific Northwest, he meets oddly familiar strangers who force him to ruminate on the nature of time, regeneration, devastation and love. But as Ulysses' path leads him towards these answers, increasingly bizarre and gruesome events begin to take place.
