an Avant -Garte film by Thomas Draschan
World Premiere: IFF Rotterdam 2004

Austria // 2003// 7 min // 16mm


Encounter in Space relates the story of a man and his various alter egos, abandoned in the midst of an unknown extraterrestrial region immersed in the sinister light of an unholy radiation, which arouses in him sexual craving and human desire. He has to encounter a number of adventures and to give proof of his potency, while having to cope with an eye operation and several other incidents. He is noticeably getting lost in the battles among his alter egos. Eventually, part of his personality leaves the planet, and the part of his personality that remains behind is able to embark in peace on a quest for new amusements.
