A Musicians Greatest Hit Becomes a Nightmare in Mysterious Short

23/32 launches the recent short directed by Nicholas Berglund director Andzej Gavriss

A Musicians Greatest Hit Becomes a Nightmare in Mysterious Short

A Musician in the deep state of a creative crisis is signed to a rehab program at the highly protected, isolated sanatorium that promises a lifetime warranty for endless inspiration. A bourgeois setting with welcoming stuff slowly creeps into a violent cult that tortures artists in the name of inspiration. The musician’s greatest hit becomes his darkest nightmare. 

It’s the story of Ivan, a once-popular pop singer who is now going through a protracted creative crisis, afraid he would never be able to repeat his own success. His greatest hit becomes his greatest nightmare. 

He arrives at a mysterious sanatorium ELEUSIS that promises a rehabilitation program for artists and a lifetime guarantee of endless inspiration. 

The singer is unaware that the sanatorium is in fact home to a violent cult where, in the name of inspiration, patients are put through terrible ordeals and torture. He is plunged into a world of shady staff, missing patients, and nightmares. And yet, it’s just the build-up for the final ritual… 

Have you lost your inspiration? Have you lost your way? Your true self? Sanatorium ELEUSIS welcomes its children.
