This film is an adaptation of an immersive sonic theatre piece created by the composer Cristian Vogel. The story is loosely based on a Scandinavian supernatural folk ballad of the same title. In the staged version, the actors and audience were immersed in the music as it played through a 24 channel Funktion-One sound system set up in a theatre in Aarhus, Denmark.

The parallel film project was filmed on set during rehearsals and edited into a movie by Tanya Goehring and Trevor Jacobson aka The Automatic Message. 

The cinematography and resulting film capture in detail many sensations of the original piece whilst extending the narrative in a surprising way.

The soundtrack of the film has been remixed especially in High Order Ambisonics, mixed down and mastered into stereo. A full surround sound version is available for screening at festivals and cinemas. Please email support @ neverenginelabs.com to find out more.
