Das PUPPETS



Principle photography began in late September 2008 on a new art film called Das PUPPETS. The strange story of Dirty Fritz, a lonely artist that falls in love with another man's wife, Mama Baer. His passion soon turns to madness and Fritz seeks to steal Mama Baer away to his secret lair of enchanted puppets with the aid of a potion provided by Gypsy Witch but her magic comes with a price. This film is a weird journey into the animal passions of the EMO actors at FUZZ a film studio set somewhere in Germany on the late 1960s and along the way we get a gut full of laughs from this dark comedy. Oh yes this is another twisted tale from writer director Fred Wilder who pays homage to many great dada fluxus artists, and surreal filmmakers in Das Puppets. The film features original DaDa music and Fluxus compsistions by Kommissar Hjuler und Mama Baer of Germany, and The Sex Socks from California.
