Diplom | graduation film

MULM is my 2019 graduation film that concluded my studies at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. Directed by me and Tobias Trebeljahr, this gloomy trip seeks to invoke the spirit of David Lynch and Brothers Quai, while overwhelming the audience with a brutal soundscape. The project was realised by us two, our Technical Director Seyed Ahmad Hosseini and our Producer Laura Messner in about 9 months with minimum help from other teammembers.
