INTERFILM 39 International Short Film Festival Berlin

IC 01 Roads Not Traveled

The short films of the International Competition also mirror the political turbulence of our times. The protagonists of the "Roads Not Traveled" series are faced with choices: like whether to contradict their völkisch-nationalistic community, or help refugees facing push-back from third parties or whether to confront a partner about an affair – and they don't always manage to make the (supposedly) right decision. Change can come suddenly: for instance, when "Swan Lake" is the only thing left on Soviet TV or a grieving woman pan-fries her goldfish. Here, the mundane becomes a symbol for upheaval.
