Synopsis: Taken directly from Ovid’s vast world of myth and re-imagined in Kreuzberg’s Spreewaldbad, the short film Echo & Narcissus follows Narcissus, the handsome son of a river god and a nymph as his arrogance sparks the ire of the shy Echo.

Preferring instead to swim, Narcissus arrives at the starting block where he discovers and is transfixed by his own reflection in the window.
