Synopsis:

Fedor is a young locksmith in Murmansk, a frozen city in the obscurity of the Russian Arctic. Client after client, he roams through the alleys of concrete animated by a fantasy that isolates him from the city and its population. His dreams corrode his relation to reality and open the door to a phantasmagoric universe; a second sun is rising above the Russian Arctic.

 

Biography:

Dorian Jespers (1993) is a Belgian filmmaker. He studied cinematography at INSAS and directing at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Gent, an education that focuses strongly on the development of a filmmaker’s personal language. This is reflected in his experimental fantasy MA film, Sun Dog. A project for which Jespers graduated with the highest distinction, received the Horlait-Dapsens prize and was offered the Wildcard by the Flemish Audiovisual Funds. The film premiered in the Tiger Short Competition of the International Rotterdam Film Festival.
