Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

 

 

Presenting the website

 

Sekuritas


First feature film by Swiss director Carmen Stadler, produced by Claudia Wick for Abrakadabra Films AG.

Selected in The BEST FOR FESTS Label

An office complex wishes for a love story before demolition. It chooses the lonely misfits for this story; those who go through security rounds at night, scrub toilets, experiment with recipes or rehearse their final speech. A poetic and twisted kaleidoscope that centers around desire, security and melodious noises which move through the entire fabric of the building.

Best for Fests 'Sekuritas': production notes and EPK

user
My workplace was in a small house in the industrial quarter. I worked there for many years. The demolition date was postponed again and again; then - one day - it was fixed. At night, when the house creaked and cracked, and the light switch didn't work, I took it as a sign: The house was sending me home. Sometimes I stayed, went to the roof terrace, looked over the empty industrial quarter. The fewer lights that burn, the more connected you feel to them. It's a no-man's-land, which ...
