Short Film Profile

Strong Coffee with Vodka

Louie is a waiter in a cafe who gets humorously walked all over by his dictatorial boss Kanaan and a sadistic customer when small, absurd misunderstandings become the order of the day.

Film notes

Strong Coffee with Vodka is a subtle short film where not much appears to happen – but a lot is said. It’s a combination of situation comedy, ironic innuendo, microagressions and misunderstandings. It's about the daily idiocies of humanity. I wanted to tell an atmospheric story that concentrated on conversation and characters. The audience might feel some sense of recognition and have to laugh about the situation or something about themselves they see in the characters – but in a slightly twisted way.
