Me Myself and I
Experimental fiction | mov | color | 5'13'' | Germany | 2015
The experimental short film ME, MYSELF AND I directed by Elisa Gómez Alvarez (script and rea- lisation) and Nicolas Stephan Fischer (fashion-collection F65.0) is about a metro-sexual matrix at the old Berlin corner pub "Soldiner Eck“. With stylistic devices of Western, Science-Fiction and the CAMP-movement the film questions society-forced role models and male stereotypes. Based on a shared research the fashion-collection and the short film were simultaneously realised in a synergetic project at University of Arts Berlin 2015. Surrounded by fairy lights and plastic flowers three male figures meet at an old Berlin pub. Despite their identical appearance they distinguish by personality and clothing. There is a strained relationship between them. Mutely the men communicate with minimal gestures as they seem confused between desire and fear. Camouflage-like their outfits vanish in the lavis- hly decorated ambience. A strange meeting, an interaction between alive and dead things in a surreal space.
