DOLORES (Germany) showing with JOE’S VIOLIN (USA)

January 21, 2017 @ 9:20 am to approx. 11:45 am



California Premiere

Georg Letterer is an introvert modeler, who builds detail-obsessed prototypes. He receives an order from famous Hollywood actress Dolores Moor to make a model of her extravagant villa. This is the opportunity for Georg to escape from suburban dreariness and the perfidious psychological terror of his brother. He tirelessly works on the detailed model and simultaneously falls for the unattainable Dolores. One day Georg discovers an unusual power: He is able to influence the physical reality of the villa through the prototype he is building. With his own interests in mind, Georg becomes a calculating puppeteer who holds the threads of life of everyone around him, just to win Dolores for himself.

A story that could have been  on “Twilight Zone”, DOLORES is adapted from the 1991 single-issue graphic novel of the same name by the Belgian trio of visual artists Anne Baltus, Benoit Peeters and Francois Schuiten.
