BLACK is an experimental short film by Mona Schüler. The film examines the topic of ‘inner demons’, standing for one's own expectations towards oneself. More specifically, the film captures the fear of not being able to meet these expectations, as well as the process of dealing with this fear. The work combines shot footage and animation, as well as performance.
The message of the film: Everything is flawed.
