The latest moviefilm by filmmaker, painter and performer Mara Mattuschka is based on Plato’s eponymous dialogue. At the center of the film is Emil, a young actor who is the object of desire of Italian fashion-designer Rossi and his dubious colleague Strauß. A fateful triangular (and later polygonal) story about power and desire unfolds. In this film, queer birds of paradise, colorful creators of self-portraits and untamed outsiders find each other and make the dark corners of the city shine.
