EN: Into the Realm of the Night: The transition from day to night. It magically casts a spell over us, we glide into it like water and enjoy it: despite all its dangers, it is the night we love.

DE: Ins Reich der Nacht: Der Übergang von Tag zu Nacht. Magisch zieht sie uns in ihren Bann, wie Wasser gleiten wir hinüber und genießen es: trotz aller Gefahren, ist es die Nacht, die wir lieben.

FR: Au royaume de la nuit: Le passage du jour à la nuit. Elle nous attire comme par magie sous son charme, on glisse dessus comme de l'eau et on en profite : malgré tous les dangers, c'est la nuit qu'on aime.

I have shot this experimental short film with my 65 years old regular 8mm old Bauer camera in Copenhagen, November 2021, when I was invited to a film festival. In a short break of the ongoing pandemic, the old amusement park reopened, which was a magical moment to me and I tried to capture the surreal atmosphere with my camera. All of the double exposures were done in-camera. Chemnitz-based musician Uwe Rottluff has created unique music with a Moog modular system.
