In flämischer and französischer Sprache mit deutscher Übertitelung

Marie and a nun who calls herself Dolores are in a dialogue. In the film, Marie is in a hospital, and the Virgin Mary appears to her. On the stage, she is living in her dreams and becomes pregnant. There is something of the archangel about Dolores and she kills the unborn life. A film is being made – within a film, and its director Geert also opens the show at the beginning.

The love for the Virgin Mary as a consequence of sexual frustration – a fascinating examination of the young Flemish artist Wayn Traub who, although not religious himself, is fascinated by the events of the Bible. How does our modern world view religious delusion and the Immaculate Conception? Mary and the Holy Ghost take each other's hand in harmony as original elements of the Christian faith and as endearing comic figures.

In »Maria Dolores«, genre barriers are completely lifted. Stage play and film merge together through the highly expressive music, nearly into an opera. Wayn Traub (originally named Geert Bové) was born in Brussels in 1972, and his grandfather was the pastry cook of the Belgian King. He studied art and theatre history in Gent and Paris and is now one of the most individual personalities in the Flemish theatre and film scene.
