Musarion (2020)

Shortfilm, 16:9, 29 min, Greece / Germany

Musarion adapts the eponymous work by german writer Christoph Martin Wieland and transfers the love story into the present day.
Phanias withdrew from the city of athens to the countryside to leave his old life behind. But one day he encounters his former girlfriend musarion who tries to bring him back to reason. The art film follows their struggle to find an enlightened form of love that can overcome philosophical and political fanaticism. Musarion was directed by a collective of five young artists and mixes elements of the original text, opera, theatre, video art and narrative film.

Der Kunstfilm ist eine Adaption der gleichnamigen Verserzählung von Christoph Martin Wieland aus dem 18. Jahrhundert, der Zeit der Aufklärung in Deutschland. Er überträgt die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Dogma, Fanatismus und Liebe in die heutige Zeit. Musarion thematisiert das Ringen um eine aufgeklärte Form der Liebe, welche den philosophischen, beziehungsweise politischen Fanatismus bezwingen kann und dadurch essentiell für künftige Gesellschaftsentwürfe erscheint.
