Civilization

Short Film, AT 2021, digital, 23 min, dOF
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 5

In spring lockdown 2020, Christoph Schwarz escapes with his family to quarantine in their Carinthian holiday home. Actually a perfect occasion to rework a new screenplay, but then Schwarz stumbles upon the classic computer game “Civilization.” Incapable of withstanding the strategy game’s magnetic appeal, Schwarz embarks upon a dangerous double life.
