Sebastian Binder, Sebastian Fred Schirmer | Germany 2016 | 12 Min. | OmeU
Everyone knows it, everyone has it. No pressure in the kettle means deadlock. Nevertheless it always seems to strong. Pressure is not tangible, pressure ist mostly transparent. But if it is high enough, it is noticeable. OVER PRESSURE (ÜBER DRUCK) cinematically searches for its manners in our everyday life. It shows truth, personality and surprise. A colourful, atmospheric picture to think about.
