“A poetic, crude, subversive pandemic film, it refuses all the rules of the genre.”
“I envy Peter Fleischmann, the continuity of themes in all his films. I admire the stubbornness, wanting to admit what makes our uniqueness in the eyes of the foreigners: the fear of the future, the panic reaction to outsiders, the escape into coziness…”
—Volker Schlöndorff, director of THE TIN DRUM
The future is uncertain. The disease is unknown, but its dead are found in embryonic repose. In Peter Fleischmann’s prescient existential wail, a band of misfits, including Jodorowsky collaborator Fernando Arrabal (VIVA LA MUERTE), attempt to flee the pandemic-induced hysteria gripping Germany. Featuring the music of Jean-Michel Jarre. Co-written by Roland Topor, the visionary artist behind FANTASTIC PLANET and MARQUIS.
