I see a Darkness

SHORT FILM
Austria, 2015, director: Jasmin Baumgartner
status: in final postproduction, duration: appr. 20min

SYNOPSIS
What happens if you really need to decide once in life? If this decision changes everything forever? The clock is ticking in her stomach. Nobody knows about it. Maybe it’s better like that, because we don´t want to remember mistakes. Carmen is pregnant. Carmen is afraid. Carmen would like to abort. Her subconscious responds – and gives her the chance to question everything.

A 24-hours odyssey through the darkness begins – with coffee and cigarettes at Mami Patricia on the balcony. She wants the best for Carmen without realizing, what her daughter really needs. Jakob is Carmen’s friend. He brings her to the opera. Le nozze di Figaro. While Figaro comes Susanne closer, Carmen becomes estranged from Jakob. Jakob can´t recognize her suffering either. Carmen is alone with her decision, until someone recognizes her in the darkness.
