Short Film, AT 2021, digital, 7 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 5

Three lived realities meet on the split screen. A shared day, a shared image, but the characters remain speechless, cut off from the world and one another, trapped in tristesse and dark spaces. In Gift rapturous music and a narrator’s voice that revolves around entry into another world condense to a reflection on isolation, alienation, and escape from reality.
