It’s going to be special at the next online HoF Rendezvous because on Saturday, 30 January 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Nikolas Darnstadt’s ODYSSEE takes us on an “odyssey” of longings:
The film is a wild reworking of Homer’s Odyssey. Europe has burned down, the earth is uninhabitable, the home O longs for no longer exists. Trapped alone in his space capsule, constantly circling around himself and the dead Earth, O’s only companion is the hypnotic voice of the on-board computer that accompanies him in his permanent self-optimization. O is not interested in the present. All his strength, his striving and his longing are directed towards only one thing: the return to Ithaca. The only diversion are O’s excursions into virtual worlds, where he meets a stranger, Nausikaa, due to a system error.
ODYSSEE is a cinematic realization with theatrical aesthetics: an extraordinary combination for a cinema evening like a trip.
As always, the online screening will take place live in the virtual Central Kino Hof, where you as a viewer can actively participate through a chat function. The screening is free of charge, but of course there is the possibility to buy a donation ticket with a freely selectable amount. All proceeds go to the filmmakers. We thank our Rendezvous supporters: Central Kino Hof, Rotary Club Hof and » Kino on Demand.
