Jury Top 10


What rolle does guilt play in our upbringing?

This cinematic essay takes on the recent scientific research within pedagogy. Feeling guilty on one hand is the result of empathy and at the other it can be the cause of severe depression.
The film depicts places of the human interaction with primates investigating the boundaries from the one side to the other. During the 72 seconds we could wonder if it is our ability to feel guilty that makes us human beings.


we make movies because we are. Our methodic is to indulge into heavy research to in a later phase forget everything finding the way back to our guts.
