Marcel Ziul and State Offer “An Invitation to Look Inside” With OFFF 2023 Titles

Bypassing the usual formulas for design event titles, director Marcel Ziul assembles a wide variety of talents and styles for an introspective look at the stresses and strengths of emotions and their impact on our lives.

Marcel Ziul: “Through candid and thought-provoking storytelling, this film invites viewers to dive into the complexity of their own feelings. We follow a journey of experiencing the heavy burden of emotions and desires to find a way to heal.

“Starting from a concept from Stanislav Grof’s theory, the Perinatal Matrices are based on clinical observations of experiences of expanded states of consciousness.

“In general, matrices are experiential patterns, worlds with specific parameters and unique characteristics. They define the way in which a person sees themselves, the world, and everything that exists. Therefore, we are always under the influence of some matrix, in some situation, throughout our existence.
 

“This film is a testament to the transformative power of openness and a reminder that our true strength lies in facing our innermost fears and confronting our vulnerabilities.”

 
“Matrix One: During the weeks in the womb, we are weightless in nature. This is the paradise which keeps us safe and full of wonder.

“Matrix Two: “When contractions happen in a closed uterus. It’s the first shift to a conflicting spectrum of feelings. The paradise becomes like a labyrinthine prison in which we experience loss of hope.

“Matrix Three: This is the struggle matrix. Here we’re pushing along the birth canal, despite excruciating discomfort. It’s our first moment of determination, heroism, and fear.

“Matrix Four: We arrive at the climax. A new life force is born into a whole new universe.
From the initial paradise till this moment – we have been reborn.

“These matrices are the foundation of this project as we use them as a path to guide the audience through the visual narrative. We use design as a form to visually represent the differences between the matrices. It’s a visual journey that evolves with each matrix.

“This film is a testament to the transformative power of openness and a reminder that our true strength lies in facing our innermost fears and confronting our vulnerabilities.”
