Sounds blur into memories and dreams. It is unclear whether or not they are real. Fluctuating mental images and the emergence of pulsing dark emotions hint at a horrible secret.

Three Questions for the Director

1. Short Film has a unique way of telling stories and exploring themes. What is it that fascinates you about the short format?

Gabor Ulrich: For me, storytelling is not the most important thing. I consider the author's short film - because of its concentrated aesthetic content - to be primarily a visual poem.

2. The program your film is selected for is called “Event of Dire Portent”: What connection do you see between your film and that title?

Gabor Ulrich: The Dune is an abstract thriller. They blurr into memories, half-dreams, it is undecided if they are real or not. Fluctuation between imagination and reality. Rocking pictures in the mind, pulsating dark emotions.

3. What film has inspried you most to make films yourself and what part of it do you see in your own work?

Gabor Ulrich: This film was inspired by a haunting, dark dream. I later found out that long ago there was actually a crime called Lady of the Dunes. If I have to mention an inspirational film director, David Lynch comes to mind.
