A film by Michiel Ubels (website)
2018 | Dutch | 39 min | Digital Video | Color & Black and White | Stereo | 25fps
Michiel has just graduated from the art academy and together with his girlfriend / assistant he moves to Switzerland for two months to edit the recordings of an extraordinary blind date. Through online dating apps, he found two strangers and put them together in a hotel room for a romantic first encounter. In one evening, the two get to know each other very intimately in the presence of a guitarist who provides the date à la minute with a juicy soundtrack. From the first touch to the sensual highlights everything is controlled by a presenter with a microphone and a stack of instruction cards.
