Short Synopsis: Hand of Mary is an experimental film about the struggles that are fundamental to our human nature.
On one side the structured clarity of human constructs, the rationality and solidity of the Apollonian. And on the other side the Dionysian: the wild and chaotic forces of nature.
The result is an ongoing conflict between the order of the human matrix and the seeming irrationality of nature.
“We shot this film as an exercise in cinematic style and staging: we prepared but also let things happen on the shoot through the spontaneous feel of the actors.
A collaboration and a learning of many perspectives. I cherish the making of this film and the souls that came together for this.” Sebastian Strasser, director
