Brief synopsis

Manivelle ist ein Automaton, der 1945 dem Libanon geschenkt und damals als neuzeitlicher Held gefeiert wurde. Heute spukt er einsam und vergessen in einer verlassenen Villa herum. Als ein junger Filmemacher eine Doku über ihn macht, gerät er wieder ans Tageslicht. Sein Mythos entfaltet sich. Eine originelle Sci-Fi Mockumentary.

Manivelle is an automaton that was gifted to the Lebanon in 1945 and celebrated a modern hero. Today his forgotten remains haunt an abandoned mansion. He is put back into the limelight when a documentary filmmaker approaches him. His myth unfolds in this unique sci-fi mockumentary.
