Rusch Meyer’s (Robert Staffl / Simon Ruschmeyer) experimental short film Alter Ego (2012) was screened at ASFF 2013. Rusch Meyer was inspired by a visit to an old disused sanatorium; exploring the long, dark corridors and decaying rooms, the history of the building and the people who once existed there inevitably impacted upon the film, which explores the different mental states a person can experience.
