FILMFORUM IM MUSEUM LUDWIG
Filmed from a bird’s-eye view and accompanied by the sound of a Mass, the camera follows a taxi driving through a wooded landscape. When the taxi draws up, four people dressed in black climb out. They have been friends since childhood but haven’t seen each other for many years. All of them are hiding something from the others. On a football pitch in the middle of nowhere, they dare to play a game that resurrects demons they believed had been forgotten.
What starts out as a reunion between old friends evolves into a riveting journey into the past. Because in these lonely surroundings beneath the open sky, things are said that have thus far been cloaked in silence. (The film’s title ENTERRÉS means ‘Buried’.)
Françoise Ellong has received awards for her films. In 2016, she presented her feature film W.A.K.A. at the 14th Afrika Film Festival Köln and received the Audience Award.
