FLUTEN Original Soundtrack

"Fluten (2019) deals with feelings of powerlessness of the individual facing a growing competitive and performance pressure. The fear of failing in a perceived competition of life kicks off a spiral of wrong decisions, with no apparent way out." Georg Pelzer (Director)

Fluten was the first full length feature film Ben Haviour was asked to write the score to. The protagonist Jonas is drifting aimlessly through the suburbian waters of Hamburg. The mood of the score is aiming to convey the feeling of floating, curiousness, being hugged but also feeling the urge to flee.

If You See Them, Shoot Them

Eight hours there. A shot. And eight hours back. With a dismantled reindeer in their backpacks. There are too many reindeer in Iceland. That's why 1,500 are released for shooting every year. A lottery decides who is allowed to hunt. Three brothers are among the winners. One weekend in August they set off for a plateau in the east of Iceland. Here, existence feels more existential. The three only have one shot. If it misses, the reindeer will run away. Author Benjamin Voßler was there, but only armed with microphones.
