AntiprinzShort Fiction, 16 minDirected by Yannick Spiess & Ella Funk
In a real-life avatar game, young voyeurs push their respective protagonists to personal limits and make experiences together that tell them something about their social reality. They exchange positions, roles and needs and lose themselves in complex relationship and communication structures.
Prince, an experienced player, pushes a couple as well as a young father, who has lost faith in the model of the traditional family, to their limits. The protected framework of the avatar role-playing game gives the characters the opportunity to play through thoughts and fantasies that they would not have dared to pronounce under normal circumstances. The resulting conflicts describe the difficulty of turning virtual experiences into reality.
