The short film "Die Spökenkiekerin und das Fräulein" is about a secret love affair: In the middle of the 19th century, a clairvoyant throws an entire village into turmoil with her prophecies. The mayor wants to have her chased away - until a lovely young lady with occult powers comes to her rescue. At the open-air cinema in Tecklenburg on Thursday, 17 August, the fairytale-like feature film will be shown for the first time in Münsterland - at the moated castle Haus Marck, the place where it was made.
After the highly acclaimed series "Haus Kummerveldt", which can currently be seen online in the Arte media library, the team around director Mark Lorei and producer Lotte Ruf has once again chosen Münsterland as the setting for a historical story. The filming for the feature film, which is just under 30 minutes long, took place in the summer of 2021 with the support of the "Münsterland Castles and Palaces Region" funding project of Münsterland e.V.. In addition to Haus Marck, the Zwillbrocker Venn in Vreden and Burg Vischering in Lüdinghausen became the film set. "Die Spökenkiekerin und das Fräulein" is based on a short story by Charlotte Krafft, who dedicated herself to the Münsterland three years ago as a regional writer. The main roles are played by Eva Maria Sommersberg as Spökenkiekerin and Jenny König as Fräulein. Mechthild Großmann, known from Münster's "Tatort", appears as the narrator with her unmistakable voice.
Die Spökenkiekerin und das Fräulein" premiered in January at the Max Ophüls Preis Film Festival in Saarbrücken. Shortly afterwards, the production won the "Blaue Blume" award in Berlin in all three prize categories (Best Film, Best Acting Performance, Best Director), which honours romantic short films.
For the local premiere on Thursday, 17 August, Münsterland e.V. and Filmservice Münster.Land will show the film on the big screen at Haus Marck. Popcorn and drinks will be available on site, and visitors are invited to bring their own picnic. The evening will be framed by a musical and literary programme. A guided tour of the filming location will take place from 6.30 pm, and the film will start at dusk. Afterwards, director Mark Lorei, producer Lotte Ruf and the actresses will come together for a panel discussion and answer questions from the audience.
