Sunday, Fulesee. Two people go diving in a lake. They understand each other without a word, everything seems ok. But the dive leads them not only to fish and into darkness, it also reaches into the depths of their souls. At 30 metres below the surface, fears and stories for which they cannot find any signs in diving language suddenly rise up. – The animated short films of Christina Benz combine the art forms of drawing, poetry and music. This film was made in close collabaration with a writer and a musician. The stop motion film was drawn with black sand.
