OVER presents a crime scene. During the course of nine wide shots, told in reverse order, we witness an intriguing story unfold. What has happened in this quiet neighborhood? A murder, a hit-and-run, an accident? The reality is profound, and deeply unexpected.

Q&A with the director

Q: How long did it take to make your short? Was it difficult to get financing?
A: Rather quick, fortunately. I wrote it in September 2014, shot over two days in November in London, and had a locked cut by January 2015. The post took a couple more months, because it was a ‘freebie’. The film was self-financed. It actually didn’t cost very much to make it. Not moving the camera cuts costs radically!

Q: Which thoughts come to mind concerning a “European cinema community”?
A: Historically, European cinema has been the stalwart of ‘arthouse’ film. It still is on many levels. But Europe is such an increasingly fragmented entity: this makes for incredibly exciting, diverse and progressive cinema, but what of ‘community’ in such fractured times? Difficult.

Q: If you owned a theatre for one night, which films would you screen?
A: MIRROR by Andrei Tarkovsky, THE WHITE RIBBON by Michael Haneke and UNDER THE SKIN by Jonathan Glazer.

Q: What is your next project?
A: I’m just completing a feature-length screenplay about two teenagers whose paths cross romantically at extremely critical junctures in their lives.
