Waking Things
(USA 2011, 16mm, 34 Min., enOF)
German Premiere
In a house in a primeval wood, a mysterious family of misfits prepares a seasonal feast for a visiting party of strangers. As they shuffle through ritualistic preparations, shadows reveal the true character of each individual: one menacing, one wounded and one worn. They are the stewards of an old tradition, blood for blood.
