Honorable Mention – “IKARUS” (Netherlands)

Runtime: 5 min
Country: Netherlands
Director: Fritz Kohle
Placement: Honorable Mention
Competition: September, 2023

Synopsis: On a holiday, Ikarus burns his wings – again!

After a series of DejaVu events I wanted to explore how to express the way I feel when a location, a person, building and landscape feel strange and familiar at the same time. And just like Ikarus, the dreamer might get his wings burnt when he gets too close to the sun.

I like playing with poetic video essay elements and soundscapes to create something that feels strange and familiar at the same time.
