Lost in The Living

Directed by Robert Manson
Produced by Lisa Roling and Robert Manson


Oisín, a musician from Dublin, travels to Berlin with his band, buzzing with the potential for adventure. He leaves behind the weight of losing his mother and an anger towards his absent father.

Oisín meets Sabine, a pretty young Berliner, who shows him the secret places that belong to the people who live in the city; hot parks, uninhabited stations, and lakes in the countryside where the free body culture is still active. These pleasures are thrown into chaos when Sabine reveals that she has a boyfriend and the futility of Oisín’s situation dawns on him. His band has left, he’s lonely, homesick, homeless and broke. He embraces the darkness, tumbles through the void and out the other side.
