“Don’t fear death, fear an unlived life.”

The film is a satirical comedy about the fear of ageing, the joy of life and the hunt for likes, followers and the most clicks.

“Don’t fear death, fear an unlived life.”

Cabaret of Death is an interactive live show, where the audience choses the games without limits for candidates who endure every humiliation and danger for a few likes. Roland Reber’s Cabaret of Death is a satire about a female dancer who can’t escape ageing despite self-optimization, an old man in hospital, who just wants peace at the end of his life but doesn’t get it, a show artist who faces the comments of her audience with full consequences, a poet searching for truth and the one with the mask who desperately wants to become famous.

After 5 month of preparation our 10th feature film has been realised withing 2 months: an incredible harmonic, funny and great shooting time.
130 people in front and behind the camera shooting in 8 different locations; the biggest wtp-production so far and a wonderful cinematic journey.
Thanks to all people involved. It was great!
