That is what it is about

It stands in the middle of the flat - large, immovable and really superfluous. Anne is not very amused by the cardboard house that Dave has built. But the culprit himself has a completely different problem: he has lost his way in the structure. One by one, friends gather in the flat to witness the spectacle. They decide to get Dave out of there. But Dave has not only built a cardboard house, but a maze with a thousand dangers... and a Minotaur!

What you should know

Tight budget? Fuck it! What Bill Watterson and the entire team pack into this film in terms of creativity cannot be outweighed by money. This flick is bursting with ideas and craziness, so much so that the charm of it all gets the audience on its side after just a few seconds. You've never seen anything like it. Cardboard, cardboard, cardboard. As far as the eye can see. It's hard to put into words. That's why we have no choice but to invite you to Dave's Labyrinth. Maybe you'll get lost like we did.

As an actor, Bill Watterson has already gained a lot of experience in front of the camera. He had even served as a motion-capture model and immortalised his movements in LA NOIR. But as a director he was a blank slate. That should and will certainly change after his directorial debut DAVE MADE A MAZE. His film was screened at over fifty festivals in 25 countries and not infrequently scooped the audience award. He deserves every one of these stages. We want to see more of him!
