BALL-HEAD

Mara Mattuschka’s Ball-Head shows us the human body that has become a kind of ‘tool’, a victim of a society in which work, technology and capitalism seem to have forever forgotten the value of human beings themselves.

NAVELFABLE

In NavelFable, Mara Mattuschka has opted for a minimalist yet highly experimental mise-en-scène. A simple stop-motion animation, together with extreme close-ups, details of screaming mouths covered by nylon stockings and drawings directly tracing the various rips on said stockings fully convey the idea of what the director wanted to communicate to us.
