Shadowless adapts the plot of the novella Peter Schlemihl's Miraculous Story(1813) by Adelbert von Chamisso, which follows a man who sells his shadow to the devil. Inspired by the expressionist film of the 1920s, the collage of drawings, photographs, film clips, found footage recordings and performatively read text excerpts situates the plot in today's Berlin real estate industry. Slowly, a fantastic psychodrama unfolds.
