We could have, we should have, we didn’t…

David M. Lorenz - 11'22"



A wintry Sunday evening. A German apartment. On television, the usual news about refugee disasters on the coast of Italy, in the kitchen Sushi is being stacked on a plate. An upper middleclass couple is just getting cozy on the sofa, when the doorbell rings...

A biting- and comedic chamber play.

“Brilliant short film by David Marius Lorenz - highly political and humorous!” Elisabeth Schabus / Ristretto.tv
