Sven Spur, Eden
Een rusteloze jonge man jaagt doorheen de gay hotspots van een grootstad. Anonieme plaatsen gehuld in spiegels, intense kleuren en kitscherige decors vormen de leefwereld voor deze zonderling op zoek naar troost, verbondenheid en zichzelf.
A restless young man roves in the gay hotspots of a metropolis. Anonymous places dressed in mirrors, intense colors and kitschy decors are the landscape for this stranger in search of comfort, connection and himself.
