A Picture in the 21st Century

Director · Short Film · AT

An artist is standing in front of a blank canvas.

His everyday life is characterized by noise and stress.
Masses of people trapped in a system, blind and tied up with their view on small screens. They rush into their own prisons. Sounds that, with more and more information and obligations, are slowly becoming unbearable noise. Anger, love, grief and joy are just uncontrollable variables.

The artist is challenged by the actors of the 21st century. Overwhelmed. Screams.
The screams will not let him go. They are everywhere and always there.
Stress and you yourself become blind.
Sounds become deafening noises.
His creativity surrenders.

A small black line on the canvas and a falling brush.
Now he lies on the ground.
Only he himself screams.

It suddenly becomes quiet and he starts to paint.
