THE MAGIC FLUTE (DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE)

THE MAGIC FLUTE
© Luis Zeno Kuhn 2022

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2022

Aspiring singer Tim (16) has been dreaming his whole life about attending Mozart All Boys Boarding School. He is over excited when he is finally admitted but his first days at the prestigious school do not turn out as expected. Facing a hostile headmaster and the stresses of first love, Tim is thrilled as he discovers a wondrous secret in the old school building – a gateway to a parallel world. He finds himself thrown into a new reality: In the role of Prince Tamino, he immerses into the cosmos of Mozart’s opera THE MAGIG FLUTE. Now, Tim must enter the fray on two fronts, he tries to win a role in the school's upcoming recital by day and returns to the magical universe where he must risk his life to free the lovely princess Pamina by night. However, living two lives takes its toll and Tim risks letting down the ones he loves – he is forced to make a decision but has he learned enough to make the right choice?
