A narrative feature film directed by Frauke Havemann, co-directed by Eric Schefter and written by Mark Johnson.
WEATHER HOUSE is set in an unspecified time of extreme planetary climate change. The title is borrowed from the Germanic folk art tradition of building humidity meters in the form of small handcrafted houses, with figures that emerge according to specific weather predictions. The film presents a life-size adaptation of this idea. Its figures are now an isolated group of disoriented characters who spend their time engaged in absurd activities. Trying to provide a measure of normality, they develop their own strange belief systems and routines. One man builds a network of wires. Another keeps himself attached to a plant. A woman is constantly recording sounds, but why and for whom? WEATHER HOUSE is ultimately as dark, strange and unpredictable as the weather itself.
WEATHER HOUSE will be shown in the Competition ‚Fantasías Sin Reglas‘ at the Insólito Festival de Cine in Lima, Peru!
Monday, Feb. 11th, 2019, 5:30pm
