Nemophelia – Mirjam Dahl Pedersen – Germany

NEMOPHELIA is a film poem about the appeal of the forest. It portrays the effects of the aesthetic sublime of nature on men, using long and strong takes. Alienated natural phenomena follow a story characterised by visual foreshadowing and an own associative temporal logic. For the sound level, Corecass alias Elinor Lüdde has created a special natural soundscape with hypnotic score. The sound design supports breaks in the storyline by emphasizing the interplay between real presentation through music made with sounds of nature and their manipulation. NEMOPHELIA creates tension through exaggeration and poetry.
