Die Kinder der Toten

Kelly Copper, Pavol Liska
A Super-8 silent film, that slowly transforms into a spooky story of a nature idyll going off the tracks and involving the resurrection of “undead” protagonists. A secretary suddenly finds herself confronted with an evil doppelgänger and drives her übermother crazy. An embittered woodsman is pursued by his sons, who committed suicide years ago. The widow of an old Nazi film collector organizes in an abandoned factory an underground CINEMA 666, where the past can be mourned without inhibition.
