Language: German

The film adapts the eponymous work by german writer Christoph Martin Wieland and transfers the love story into the present day.

Phanias withdrew from the city of Athens to the countryside to leave his old life behind. But one day he encounters his former love Musarion who tries to bring him back to reason.
The film follows their struggle to find an enlightened form of love that can overcome philosophical and political fanaticism.

“Musarion” is a collectiv work of five young artists and mixes elements of the original text, opera, theatre, video art and narrative film.
