Marcel Dettmann Releases Short Film For “Secution” Feat. Emika
Marcel Dettmann has teamed up with long time family friend, Parker Ellerman to produce the short film come music video for the single, “Seduction” feat. Emika from Dettmann’s latest album, II. The video is dark and twisted and evokes emotions and themes that arise when listening to Marcel’s album.
Beautifully shot in black and white in the German capital where Dettmann has a residency at one of the worlds hottest techno clubs, Berghain, the film takes a step away from cliched Berlin music videos. Shot mostly in West Berlin, director Ellerman wanted to capture” the golden 20’s and expressionism,” utilising famous buildings such as the Hotel Atlanta and the Pension Funk hotel, home to famous silent movie star Asta Nielsen. The set design and costume design are both heavily inspired by 20’s culture and fashion with the “dancers in the roof top scene wearing costumes inspired by expressionist mask dancer Lavinia Schulz,” who lived in Berlin until the 1920’s.
“Seduction” is out on Ostgut Ton on June 30.
