DISSONANCE

TILL NOVAK | 17 MIN | GERMANY | 2015

Who owns reality? Who defines where fantasy begins? A genius musician lives a lonely life in a surreal, floating world. He plays the piano every day in a gigantic concert hall, but there is nobo- dy to listen. One day his animated world collap- ses and reality breaks out. He misses his daugh- ter and wants to visit her, but her mother doesn‘t allow it. The film seamlessly transforms from an animation into a live action drama, reflecting the journey from the psychotic mind of a poor street musician into the real world. He only has one wish: To play for his daughter, which he is not allowed to visit any more.
