DE: "Schweige still, denn ich betrete die Schwelle der Welten!"
Sue arbeitet als Medium, um Leichtgläubige anzulocken. Ihre Masche weist Mängel auf. Stellt euch ihren Schreck vor, als sie entdeckt, dass Geister wirklich den Lebenden erscheinen können! Höchste Zeit, ein "echtes" Medium aufzusuchen!

ES: "¡No hable porque estoy cerca del umbral de los mundos!" Sue trabaja como psíquica sonsacando dinero a los creyentes en la vida eterna. Su show tiene algunos defectos. ¡Imagina su sorpresa cuando ella misma descubre que los fantasmas pueden aparecer en efecto en la vida! Es este el momento para consultar con una medium "real".

Director Biography - Dave Lojek

Dave Lojek loves filmmaking. He belongs to the prolific and most often selected directors of the 21st century with over 1897 screenings of his distributions at international film festivals worldwide. His favorite genres are comedy, parody, fantasy, romance, poetry, art and experiment. Dave also directs documentaries, dramas, portraits, sci-fi, and music videos. His works and distributions won 237 film awards. Dave Lojek graduated with an MA in English / American and Cultural Studies from Humboldt-University in his hometown Berlin.
In terms of content and style, Dave's poetic films are about magic, love, death, friendship, loneliness, artists, oddities, escapism, mythology and the everyday. Based on the Homo-Ludens-principle, Dave clearly focuses his often-cheerful work on the universal and timeless. His motivation for filmmaking is intrinsic.
As independent producer, Dave created 178 movies in 26 cities in 12 European countries by 2024. Mr. Lojek hosts monthly open cinema screenings in Germany’s oldest cinema Moviemento and annual film workshops called KinoKabarets with his initiative KinoBerlino.

The productions of APEIRON FILMS and KinoBerlino have been broadcast weekly since 2008 (ca. 12.000 times) on German TV and viewed online over 2 million times.
