During a hot Swiss afternoon at home, I decided that I wanted to shoot a movie for a local short film festival. i wanted to do a parallel of the concept that you only use what you are given, so if someone has poor control of their emotions, it’s because it’s all they have. A dog being dealt with violence will react with violence; a person brought up with a short temper reactions might become themselves short tempered. i called my friends, but nobody could come. I had to shoot it entirely myself, except for my dad who just showed up at some point so I included him in the movie.
