ACCIDENT DE PERSONNE
Álvaro Martín | France, Spain 2018 | 4 Min. | OmeU
A film about a metaphor, a linguistic concealment of a sad truth with a tragic end: Accident de Personne called “accident of person” in English. An unconventional short movie about the societal and most of all, the linguistic ways of dealing with the still hushed up subject of depression and suicide at public transportation.
