Synopsis

«Mosquito» is a tragedy-thriller (12min) about the fight between an elderly man and a mosquito; without any dialogue. This film reveals how far a decent citizen in our civilisation is willing to go to kill a small insect.

Project

«Mosquito» is a project initiated by the director and writer Timo von Gunten after a series of short films. It was produced by Rajko Jazbec (CognitoFilms) in collaboration with BMC Films and Fabian Weber Photography. This project's greatest challange was the last page of the script: The protagonist fluds his entire bedroom with water to let the mosquito drown. A team of over 20 enthusiastic artists and technicians have been involved and helped the mosquito become alive in this bitter-sweet short film tragedy.
