Come And Play (Komm und spiel)
Daria Belova, 30 minutes, 15
Berlin. Grisha, a Russian-German boy, fools around with a wooden stick toy gun. The longer he plays, the further he is thrust into an altered reality. The boundaries between the past and the present, the real and the surreal, star to blur. Images from bygone Berlin appear; streets and buildings still carry the memories of war. Suddenly, he is caught in a nightmare of another lifetime, nightmare that is still present today. “Come And Play” is a film about the memory of a place. Time does not disappear and the past does not go away. Everything coexists in one moment.
