About the Oberhausen Festival:
For over 50 years the Oberhausen Festival has been one of the most important film institutions in the world which serves as a catalyst and showcase for contemporary works. Filmmakers ranging from George Lucas to Roman Polanski have shown their first films at the Oberhausen Festival.
About the film:
“NO MOON” presents altered states of mind through the experience of several entities and actions. Ritualistic transformation of materials brings further levels of hallucination. What is not seen carries these actions and entities to a place of absolute delirium.
