A Recess and a Reconstruction
Written and directed by Louise Hervé and Chloé Maillet, 2011, 22 min.
With: Rachel Spicer as Hippolyta, Benjamin Seror as Manfred, and Francis Grew.
Somewhat at a loose end, two museum guides in a basement storeroom are marveling at the great resourcefulness of archeological museography. Elsewhere, on an excavation site, an archeologist standing by trenches and mechanical diggers is describing artefacts. Much further along, a young woman imprisoned in the underground recess of a castle lets her terror fantasies run wild. A Recess and a Reconstruction is a Gothic story where the line between what is past and what lies in the future is in the process of disintegrating.

Serving: Bärenjäger (bear hunter). In medieval times, bear hunters would enticing the bears with meschkinnes, a mead-like moonshine made by bee keepers and farmers which was irresistible to bears and humans alike. In the 15th century, the Teucke and Konig Bear Trap Company created the first professionally produced meschkiness (“Bärenjäger”). And it’s still made with natural ingredients using the same methods.
