Brief synopsis

Interviews mit an ihren Geburtstagen Verstorbenen. Dank der neuen Technologie namens „Ecto-Kamera“ können Geistwesen jetzt erstmals direkt gefilmt werden. Aber kein Horror erwartet den Zuschauer sondern: Erinnerungen, Anekdoten, Grüße, pränatale Depressionen, Mattheit. Eine Pseudokumentation.


Interviews with people who died on their birthdays. Thanks to the new technology known as “Ecto-Camera” it is now possible to film the ghostly remains of the deceased directly. No horror awaits the viewer, but: Memories, anecdotes, greetings, prenatal depression, weariness. A pseudokumentary.
