Told with minimalism and humor, WEATHER HOUSE is ultimately as dark, strange, and unpredictable as the weather itself.
The title is borrowed from the Germanic folk art tradition of building humidity meters in the form of small, handcrafted houses, with figures that emerge according to specific weather predictions. The film presents a life-size adaptation of this idea. Set in an unspecified time of extreme planetary climate change, its figures are now an isolated group of disoriented characters who spend their time engaged in absurd activities.
Trying to provide a measure of normality, they develop their own strange belief systems and routines. One man builds a network of wires. Another keeps himself attached to a plant. A woman is constantly recording sounds, but why and for whom? A dark humor arises from the gradual decay of reason in this official selection of the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival.
