Geschichten eines Jungen, einer Frau und eines Soldaten

Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 5

No one can talk of war. In her confrontation with the trauma of war, Franziska Pflaum interlaces the stories of an Afghani soldier, his mother, a young boy from Afghanistan, and a filmmaker who wants to shoot a film about these people. An inability to speak arises, which is effective precisely because it can’t be filmed.
