The year is 2027.
The overcrowded Earth swelters in a climate that has become unbearably hot. The elderly are sent out to the cooler climes of space.
Directed by Pawel Kryszak
(Poland, 2009, 5')
An anonymous clerk in an anonymous system is browsing through the files, searching for information on a young woman kept in detention. On a CCTV recording he watches a fragment of her life in prison - moping around a prison cell with her baby and unable to cope with its constant crying... In this short and fragmentary but extremely suggestive form, Kryszak creates an atmosphere of total control by the omnipotent apparatus of force. This individual, understated and allusive story transforms into a universal parable on torturers and their victims, on the fragility of individual human life confronted with the almighty system.
Directed by Martin Minsel, Florian Schnell
