This drama/dance film is set in a dystopian world and reflects a sense of post war depraved state of mind. A woman visits a deserted old industrial building. Once there, she encounters two children. They lead her deeper inside the building and closer to their dark secret. What started, as an innocent game has suddenly become an odd ballet.

I Play Dead is a collaboration between filmmaker/composer Kaveh Akaber and dancer/choreographer Lova Eriksson.
The film has been shot in Åminne Bruksmuseum, a factory built in late 1800 to win ore from the lake and to produce ironwork.
Entering the building you still get a unique sense of the past and the hard work that has been done here, which was why we fell in love with this place!
