Codfish & Cyanide | Kabeljau mit Zyankali

a narrative film in German

ENGLISH SUBTITLES ---> [CC]

She can’t believe it when he arrives at the restaurant looking squalid, shabby and unwilling to explain himself. The truth sounds way too absurd and being a notorious liar, he can’t risk anything. Cornered, he tells her an intricate story and expects everything – except her actual reaction.
Two persons, one room, a conflict.

"This is delicious and achievable storytelling. A lesson or all aspiring filmmakers who wish to make a contained short and don’t know how to go about doing so." (onesmallwindow.com)

"I wouldn’t be lying if the situation and the German language reminded me of some scenes from Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglorious Basterds, the depth and intensity of the conversations as well as the absurdity of the entire setting." (filmshortage.com)

"Gesslbauer manages to weave an entertaining and fully realized tale all within the confines of one location." (cinemaaxis.com)

It does not matter, where in the world you are and who you are. Everybody struggles, and so do the characters of this 6min short. Living completely unaware of each others existence and yet so close to each other – in the financial district of Frankfurt, Germany, the ways of two strangers cross. A banker without any hope and a homeless person with even less – can there be any good outcome to this?

Chrissy and George - two 40-ish, city dwelling singels. He a musician. She a cook. Neither of them where they thought they would be at this stage of their lives. And now, long in the tooth, and after too long on the shelf, they have little reason to believe in „Happy Ever After“. It would be a shared cigarette in a rest home car park that brings them together. A cigarette that would lead to a night of passion. Chrissy and George decide to give love one last shot. A shared apartment, shared plans, a shared life. Perfect. Until one day there

Jonatan

a narrative film in German

Winner of the 'Daily Short Pick' at Film Shortage and 'Short of the Week' at The Awardeo Company.

Written after watching Janusz Kaminski's 11 (very) short films and redeveloping his idea; the basic concept for this short film is to tell part of a larger story in under two minutes with just one scene and very minimal dialogue. This allows the audience to create most of the story themselves based off the details in the scene.

Shot on a RED Epic with Zeiss CP.2 lenses.

Writer / Director: Aaron George
Producers: Alix Whittaker and Anna Duckworth
Production Manager / 1st AD: Meredith Rehburg
Cinematographer: Matt Thomas
1st Assistant Camera: Manon Laffitte
Editor: Connor Strati
Boom Operator: Chayse Millar
Production Designer: Adison Whitley
Wardrobe Designer: Emily van Wichen

Music by Clark Rhee

Cast:
Liam Mulligan
Simon Shreeve

Thank you to those of you who funded the use of the RED camera rental via Kickstarter.
