Synopsis: A freelancer, Rolf (Hannes Florstedt), feels that his part-time occupation of designing covers for self-help books is like a thin thread stopping him from joining the ranks of the unemployment. His flatmate, Jan (Andreas C. Meyer), is amused by Rolf’s “work” but at the same time jealous of the freelance lifestyle. So when Rolf is offered a full time job he faces the dilemma of whether to tie himself down and thus saving himself from self-help torture or to maintain his freedom.
We shot it in Berlin on 16mm and it has a running time of 8:34min. It was my final project for the Film Akademie Kelle.
