This Week’s Guest Short: “Anna Blume” by Vessela Dantcheva
Germany/Bulgaria 2009, 9 min
Synopsis: Anna Blume is a visual poetry about the lust of a man chasing a woman. The story takes on a surreal journey dictated by the mind of the poet. Lust and ingestion, disguised in love, drive the two characters to an end where love turns to be a very lonesome and strange place. The ﬁlm is based on and inspired by the emblematic love poem from 1919 “An Anna Blume” by Kurt Schwitters.
