Director: Jörn Threlfall
2015, 14', no dialogue

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Palm Springs in 2015, Jörn Threlfall’s unusual short Over uses reverse chronological storytelling to reveal the incidents which caused a crime scene in a quiet neighbourhood suburb. A leisurely-paced short with an overwhelmingly powerful and surprising resolution, Over is a film which calls for a patience not always associated with online audiences. What has happened in this quiet neighbourhood? A murder, a hit-and-run, an accident? The reality is both profound, and deeply unexpected.
