Elise Florenty and Marcel Türkowsky are an artist-filmmaker duo based in Berlin-Paris. Together they have directed several short/mid-length films exploring specific socio-political and historical contexts through the prism of altered states of consciousness – lucid madness, hallucinations, dreams. They have received the EMAF award for The Sun Experiment (Ether Echoes) (2014, Ukraine) & Conversation with a cactus (2017, Japan) as well as the Cinéma du Réel short film award, the La Cabina Amalgama prize and a special mention at Transcinema for Back to 2069 (2019, Greece) & Don't Rush (2020, Greece). Their first monograph One head too many is published by Bom dia Books.
