Shortcutz Berlin – Session #52 (May 10)

This week’s Competition Shorts are:

Short #1: “Ferngesteuert” by Hendrik Maximilian Schmitt
2012, 16.43 min
Synopsis: During therapy with a psychologist is the 18-year old Maik confronted with events of a disturbing night. His carefully built up front seems to crumble more and more, as he remembers. But as much as he wants to entrust himself to somebody – he simply can’t: his friend Thomas wants to prevent his involvement by all available means.

Short #2: “1949”  by Paul Florian Müller
2011, 17.48 min
Synopsis: The year 1949 in Germany: a man wakes up in a cellar, next to him two dead bodies. He doesn’t remember who he is or what happened. An investigator tries to find out if the man is a suspect or a victim. The psychological cat-and-mouse game between the two men turns into a race against time.

This Week’s Guest Short: “FRAMES” by Martin Thoburn and Matti Adoma
