The Goose

Mike Maryniuk

Competition International Feature Award!

In presence of the main actor Robert Crooks!

In villages, freaks always stand out particularly. Branded as such, is the nameless protagonist known to all only as “the Goose“. Mute, introverted, and with sloping shoulders he is widely considered an idiot. Being chased around by village “youngsters“ in their mid-twenties for film shoots, and only endured on tasteless barbecue and pool parties, he prefers to retreat to his Arcade video games. Psychedelic daytime and nightmare sequences mirror the overload that continuously accompanies him. Maybe a time machine can help to escape from all this chaos of not-at-all-normal normality? Absurd plot twists, anarchic humor and a lot of Flicker and Mash up – The Goose is a special kind of visual trip.
