CYANe is an experimental narrative film project about the life of some people in a distant future called NOW. The film is loosely based on „Treffpunkt im Unendlichen“, a novel by Klaus Mann from 1932, picking up on central motives, like that of a „lost generation“ in-between nihilism and hedonism facing the abyss and the longing for but the impossibility of Hingabe (passion, devotion). Set in a post-natural, global South, the world is a cruise-ship in perpetual dislocation. The earth became infertile. A girl dissolves through different situations and encounters. As the story unfolds she is kept hostage by traditional incarnations of her possible self – the maiden, the mother and the crone. It is the impossible coming of age of a female figure in the age of earthquakes. CYANe is the first film in a series about farewell – in this the first case a farewell to a certain kind of futurability.
