Short Film Profile


In a hospital's aftercare ward, the patients are waiting, wrapped in bandages, holding diagnostic reports, reading free magazines. Waiting to be called up for an X-ray, check-up or monitoring. The monitors beep. The coffee machine hums. A wheelchair
silently glides past.

Film notes

Nachbehandlung (After treatment) transforms an everyday situation into a choreographed audiovisual mosaic, the portrait of a microcosm, a snapshot of life.
