A neo black and white short film on a triangle nonsense.
This is not a story. There are just points on a curve.
A man in an office. Why ?
A women waiting. For what ?
A dead man walking. Where to ?
Time is a curve. There are just points on a curve.
3 characters, 3 spaces, 3 glimpses on one moment.
Time links them. Until something happens.
What exactly ? You could try to de-puzzled it.
A Man comes to an appointment, where nobody waits for him. That's what it seems. However, how is it that everything in the room tends to break and disappear? Who is he ?
A Women is trying to get out of her. Will she find a way or is she caught in her looking-glass. Or perhaps in his.
Or is it in the one from the (soon) dead lover, that we glance fleeting at running to his last rendez-vous ? With her or whom ?

The Berlin-based Belgian-Catalan author and cineaste Clara Pons studied philosophy at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, and piano (with Boyan Vodenitcharov) at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels before she turned to video art and directing. She was an assistant director in productions at the
Brussels Théatre La Monnaie, the Ruhrtriennale, the Zürcher Oper, the Theater Basel and the Oper Frankfurt among others.
Clara’s international breakthrough followed in 2011 with a dramatized version of Schubert‘s Schwanengesang, which toured along prestigious theaters such as the Brussels Monnaie, the Komische Oper Berlin, the Vienna Theater an der
Wien, and at the Norske Opera Oslo. Building on Hugo Wolf‘s orchestral Mörike songs she wrote and directed IRRSAL/Forbidden Prayers, her first feature film for performance in live concerts, which was premiered in September 2013 at the Tonhalle Düsseldorf and since then was performed in Rotterdam (with Rottedam Philharmonisch Orchestra), in Chemnitz (Robert-Schumann-Philharmonie) and with deFilharmonie and Philippe Herreweghe in Belgium and the Netherlands.
The great success of IRRSAL enabled Clara Pons to establish an international consortium of co-producers for the current WUNDERHORN project, which includes a full length feature film distilled from Mahler‘s 24 Wunderhorn-Lieder.
Next projects include much Bach, some Messiaen, Berio and Ligeti and a short-feature movie.
