Jan Bachmann · Germany, Switzerland 2014 · fiction · 25 min
In a fully capitalized urban and rural space, creativity for
someone with no capital is limited to their Vimeo account.
At least as long as they stick to the laws. However, a group of
robbers want to break the lethargy and rob a bank. Time passes
by and nothing really seems to work. One moves purposelessly
through spaces, sells electronic goods or tries to develop iPhone
apps to get by. The breakthrough seems already impossible as the cinematic space begins to dissolve.
