Fabian Huebner’s feature length debut FONOTUNE / An Electric Fairytale spins a statically-charged yarn of a story that deals with a futuristic landscape, precious cassette tapes, and travelers from another planet (to just name a few). Intrigued? Then check out more after the jump!
More in depth story details can be read as follows:
“FONOTUNE is an electric fairytale that follows the events of one strange day in an undefined time and world.
Through a blanket of static and white cloud, a capsule touches down and the stoical MONO crawls out to begin his odyssey through a calm urban chaos. He holds a white cassette tape he must deliver to a mysterious person unknown. On his journey, a teenage hooker and graffiti vandal called STEREO tags along with him; they wander through small but significant episodes in the city, encountering other delinquents and outcasts. The two make a simple and fleeting connection. Then she leaves.
Meanwhile, at the edge of the city, a vapor trail pinpoints the crashsite of another capsule. Through the smoke comes an astronaut, the lo-fi cowboy ANALOG, who’s been traveling for who knows how long, with a yellow cassette in the pocket of his worn-out jeans. He and MONO are destined to cross paths.
Eventually MONO emerges through a hole in the city wall, stepping onto the vast, white salt flats to finally meet the person who wants the tape. It’s only from here he notices the perilous state of the world.”
