THE OTHERWORLD film
A Celtic Tale.
Copyright © 2009 GiselaProductions
Especially influenced by mysticism and romanticism, Celtic mythology and the realm of Fairies was the inspiration for the fantasy work "The Otherworld". A fascination by both mythology and philosophy and continuous extensive studying and research about different myths and tales, spiritual realms, folklore, theology, paganism, cosmology, physics,... have lead to the development of this production.
Building bridges from one theory to another and finding common threads which run between seemingly
different bases of knowledge is at the core of Gisela's inspiration to creating worlds without limits.
The Otherworld is an original story written by Gisela Pereira and inspired by Celtic legends and myths. It's a mythical and enchanting faerie tale, bringing with it the most mystical characters.
One of the most fascinating characters in Celtic mythology, the Warrior Lugh, crosses Woodland heading to Tara to join the court of King Nuada and the Tuatha De Danann. Nuada and his kingdom are at this time oppressed by the Fomorian tribe, and trying to retaliate for their land and freedom.
During Lugh's travel, he is bewitched by a faerie (Immrama) to a Beltane celebration, when the line between the human and faery world become tiny and Lugh crosses unaware to The Otherworld .
Lugh and Immrama fall in love. However, they live in different times and worlds...
