The Maddock Manifesto
by Dimitri Stapfer
It all begins in an empty theatre. In search of a manuscript that is supposed to change the world, Ben embarks on an odyssey. He encounters a flying fish, a telephone without a dial, an oracle called Enigma and a mystical canine figure in a deserted mountain landscape – reality and desires become inextricably intertwined on his visually stunning journey.
With “The Maddock Manifesto”, Dimitri Stapfer (director) and Benjamin Burger (book and acting) create an intriguing cinematic trip – a modern fable about loneliness and the desire for change.
