Carpe Memo

A Film by Max Koller

Synopsis

He who reflects his past, influences his future,
He who controls his present, manipulates his past,
He who wills his future, shapes his present.

One man, one bondage: the bondage to time. Every soul ages, willingly or unwillingly. Roland is unwilling, but this bondage overwhelms him. He feels time slipping through his fingers. How can he defend himself? He cannot. Time marches inexorably forwards. He is helpless, powerless, and ill-equipped. It’s this situation, from which he cannot escape. It confronts him with the three tenses of life: the future, the present, and the past. And Roland’s mind is made a tornado!

    Max Koller

    Max Koller is a young Austrian author. He was born 1990, in Vienna and grew up in Krems an der Donau. In 2010 Max took a course at the filmschule-wien. His first film „The last drag“ had its origin there, but soon the project broke the mould. Writing and directing fascinated him since he was a little boy and grew to be his passions. Besides telling stories he studies Mathematics and Chemistry and teaches at a school for young refugees. Science and social projects are an important source of inspiration, although most stories are about emotional or psychological aspects of life.
