Enter a mysterious night world and experience the heightened senses of species which have to survive under hard conditions, thus having evolutionally developed an extreme sharpness of senses. Using their skills to enhance the human driver's abilities to control all danger sources he may encounter on the road, this Sehsucht production highlights the wide range of MAZDA's i-Activsense safety technologies.
The car makes its way through mystic, sometimes dreamy surroundings and gradually seems to absorb the wild creatures' special abilities which accompany the driver on his way, finally embodying the perfect fusion of the qualities provided by these animals’ extreme senses.

Today abstraction is no longer that of the map, the double, the mirror, or the concept. Simulation is no longer that of a territory, a referential being, or a substance. It is the generation by models of a real without origin or reality: a hyperreal. The territory no longer precedes the map, nor does it survive it. It is nevertheless the map that precedes the territory – procession of simulacra – that engenders the territory, and if one must return to the fable, today it is the territory whose shreds slowly rot across the extent of the map. It is the real, and not the map, whose vestiges persist here and there in the deserts that are no longer those of the Empire, but ours. The desert of the real itself.” Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard
Mischa Rozema and PostPanic Pictures' debut film project SUNDAYS completes a first step towards its Feature Film goal with the release of this ambitious proof-of-concept short. Much-anticipated and widely-supported by the international creative community (over 50K US Dollars was donated on Kickstarter alone for the live action filming part in Mexico City), SUNDAYS is directed by Mischa Rozema.
Set in Mexico City sometime in the future and starring US actor Brian Petsos and Mexican actress Sofia Sisniega, SUNDAYS is an ambitious philosophical science-fiction proof-of-concept short.
The end of the world seems like a nightmare to Ben. A memory of a past life that doesn’t belong to him. When Ben starts to remember Isabelle, the only love he’s ever known, he realises she’s missing in his life. An existential descent into confusion and the desperate need to find out the truth begins. This reality depicts a stunning, surprising and dark world. A world that is clearly not his.

A fast-paced, time-reversed construction retrospective. A huge solar energy plant of technological uniqueness. A daring pioneer breaking ground. And finally, a van capable of adapting to the most versatile conditions.
For the birth of the best Sprinter ever Sehsucht together with Markenfilm stage a ground-breaking ceremony of its own kind literally taking us back in time to the very first cut of the spade.
The team took great efforts to realize director Ole Peters vision making both, the 30 second TVC and the massive 4-minute imagefilm, a cinematic experience. The result is paying tribute to the basic idea of 'Pioneers at Work' proving that good things come to those who … get stuff done.
