Five love stories in a film without people - Dark Daily Soap banishes the actors from the film set and effectively stages their voids with light, music and camera movement.
The filmic experiment breaks with our viewing habits and shows how media experiences affect our perception: What happens when we are no longer able to project our longings and expectations onto a counterpart? Despite or because of its omissions, this love epic is anything but empty. Away from (gender) clichés, it opens up a space for fantasies that want more out of life.
