“A FUTURISTIC TALE ABOUT HUMAN FREEDOM CONTRA MODERN SOCIETY”
“THE ENSLAVED HER AND TOOK AWAY EVERYTHING SHE LOVED … HER FREEDOM”
“INSPIRED BY THE LIFE OF AND TALKS WITH SUZANA LUNGU”
Anti-Social Club is a 24min art-house film about a young woman named Suzana who is living emancipated in nature but then is being forced by norms and rules of society to assimilate into to being a good, productive and law obedient citizen and contribute to society and the economics of the state, thereby becoming a slave of the system.
Artist Statement by Danny Germansen:
The film is based on the life of and talks with SUZANA LUNGU .
Its a futuristic tale ala GEORGE ORWELL´S 1984.
The idea sprung out from Suzana telling me about her life in Romania. Where she would work in her garden in her bikini taking care of her tomato plants and other plants that she will go to the market to sell. I talked to Suzana about having that kind of freedom where you live in the nature and are your own boss. That you don´t have to be a part of the system or society, but be more or less self-sufficient by living of the land and live a life outside the norms of society without all the martialist things people of the world need today.
Suzana made up the name ANTI-SOCIAL CLUB as a joke that she wanted to make a club for herself to be anti-social in.
So one night I was laying in my bed after a couple hours of sleep, not fully awake, but half a sleep, I suddenly had a picture in my mind. It was very clearly. It pictured Suzana in her bikini – Sitting on her knees in a garden working in the soil and the title ANTI-SOCIAL CLUB was written on top of the picture. From there I developed the story about human freedom contra the state/system/society and it stood very clear to me after having seen that picture in my mind how exactly the film should be written and produced.
