Drexciya film

A short science fiction film inspired by the Drexciyan myth has been made on location in Africa. Entitled Drexciya (2012), an April screening of the 28 minute film was held in Germany a few weeks back, which put it on my radar. Hopefully it will be screened again or put online at some point. It’s described thus…

The science fiction short by Simon Rittmeier (co-produced by Carolin Christgau, director of GZK/ UGCS) turns the world upside down: Thomas works as a smuggler for European refugees that seek for a better living in Africa. As one day his boat sinks he is the only survivor to reach the African coast and starts a journey to reach Drexciya – a highly developed metropolis. A science fiction approach on the situation between Africa and Europe.

An intriguing looking trailer for it can be viewed here

There is not much happening to my knowledge with Herr Mueller or his collaborative projects, nor with Drexciya reissues etc lately but I have been keeping busy archiving some of my old music (Memory Cells and Secret Society), doing a new art project and publishing a new book about my art, Deeper into Nothing.
