Zweibettzimmer

Two old men share a hospital room, in which the window is the only connection to the outside world and thus becomes a highly demanded resource.

Film notes

"Double Occupancy" is a parable about the greed of man - an animated intimate play about the power of imagination and illusion.

The Screenplay is based on a short story by German author Wolfdietrich Schnurre (1920-1989) - The story about a universal conflict between two static characters was inspiring! The story itself was very brief - half a page, only a short description of what happened. I decided to create an animation that reflects a problem of today's society: The greed of man. For me it was even more than that – the story circles around a self-reflexive layer about storytelling and the power of imagination. On the other hand I wanted to show human abysses in this one claustrophobic location: What is the slightest difference between two people that causes the desire for killing?
