| ||Julia Ostertag´s next project is a fantastic horror movie:|
A young woman drifts aimlessly through life when she gets access to a hidden parallel universe where a Dark Mistress and a circle of bizarre characters live a life full of witchcraft rituals and transgressive excesses.
Magic cinema merging dreams and nightmare to an occult psychedelic universe.
Using all my witchcraft I found an amazing ensemble and before the end of february we are going to shoot the first big scene in Berlin!
But to keep going and shoot the entire film, we still need your support! We need more locations, lights, catering and other things that unfortunately cost money.
So please take your chance and support us - using the donate button below on this page. Everyone who donates gets rewarded - guaranteed! With special surprises, updates, downloads, DVDs, filmposters, prints or Tarot readings by the director (can also be done via skype)
Please help us materialize this project and become a part of DARK CIRCUS
