House of Salt

Director: Willem Gerritsen
What can you do if you want to become part of a group that does not recognise your presence? In this short art film, a man learns what he must give up to be accepted.
A man ends up with a group of people who pretend he is simply not there. He does everything he can to become part of the group and learns what he must give up to do so. The film, full of symbolism and philosophical references, explores the themes of xenophobia and identity in human group behaviour. This is an immersive collaboration between fashion designer duo MARTAN, writer/director Willem Gerritsen and composer Raphael Vanoli (with the Asko Schönberg Ensemble), merging three art forms.
