HANGER (13 min)
Directed by Charlotte Lim
Like in a fairy tale. A dreamy girl or young woman in a cottage. Cockroaches seem to be the only thing hampering her. She fights back with a coat hanger. Quite stylish, a coat hanger. Carefully made. Beautifully lit. Deftly played. Perfect poetic cinema.(Synopsis from International Film Festival Rotterdam.)
