INTERVIEW WITH MEL PIPER, CREATOR OF ''NO MAN'S LAND'' (FILMARKETHUB)

With this film I want to explore my hopes and fears as a European. For me both are linked to a personal debate on what it means to be free and how to cope with illness. There is a connection between the soul and the appearance of our world. As there is between the soul and the appearance of a human being. The no man’s land is an entity, a manifestation of what we usually cannot see: The underlying grid of our togetherness, that either keeps people connected or keeps them apart.

European countries are traversed by annihilating stretches of no man’s land. An alchemist finds missing persons. And a scientist researches ways to stop progressive annihilation. Their endeavours collide when the scientist asks the alchemist to find his son.
