Short Films Block: Society & Humans

April 4, 2019 @ ACUDkino 20h


Henri Haake just graduated from the art university in Berlin. He is an independent painter now. Insecure about his future he tries to be part of the art world. Lost in small-talks, networking, studio visits, he works hard on a blue painting, which in a way seems to mirror his emotions towards the superficial world surrounding him.
