Synopsis

North American Premiere - In attendance of the Director Irina Rubina.

An experimental film presenting a musical joust between musicians who make the rules and those who carry them out. Perched in a frame of wood and steel, they are tense to the point of bursting and offer an electric performance.

Irina Rubina

The swirl of life brought Irina Rubina to this world as a Muscovite. But the smell of fresh pretzels drew her to Germany. She jumped into art in Brunswick, Germany, then pushed off and dove into the mathematical ocean in Berlin. But beneath the surface she realized that the deeper she delved, the darker it became. She was afraid to end up in the Black Square, so she decided to make another 180-degree turn. On the way back she came across a school of fish. It was so colorful and had moved so elegantly that she simply had to swim behind it. She tried to retain its bright colors and graceful plasticity. When she turned her eyes away from the fish, she found herself in the Animationinstitut at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, where she has swum happily seven years long… Now, drop by drop she creates a new ocean as an independent artist, director and author.
