Intrusion

A Film by Natalie Plaskura

Synopsis

The short film INTRUSION does not tell a classical story. The main focus lies on the visual design, which has the intention to convey a mood. The motives and the associative dramatic composition are reminding of dream sequences, nightmares or hallucinations in which the uncanny and the curious are staged; Unrealistic, seemingly disparate, yet interrelated scenes that poke, like an intrusive recurring traumatic experience, into the mind of the powerless spectator.
