Experiencing Interruptions?

Living Room

Living Room is a visual story about loneliness, isolation and indecision. What if the walls literally close in on you? What if what is supposed to protect you consumes you?
The film tells the story of two lonely souls who rent the same room, but at different times. Once inside, they cannot get out. Slowly but gradually the walls are closing in around them…

A silent film about a timeless human struggle that turns into a nightmare.

Director Biography - Lilia Scheerder

Lilia Scheerder is a printmaker, performance- and sound- artist, filmmaker, photographer, organizer and Drag King. Her work revolves around the analog, the black and white, the obsolete and the dark.

Structures and buildings play an important role in her work. She gets the ideas from dreams and nightmares, which she can often remember in great detail. They are a breeding ground of images for her interdisciplinary work. Buildings and interiors in dreams can be understood as images for body and mind.
She is also deeply inspired by silent film and analogue media. In film, she tries to use analogue (animation) techniques within modern media and translate the language of silent film to modern media and applications.
