Über Druck

A Film by Sebastian Binder
and Sebastian Fred Schirmer (Co-Director)

Synopsis

OVER PRESSURE. Everyone knows it, everyone has it. No pressure in the kettle means deadlock. Nevertheless it always seems to strong. Pressure is not tangible, pressure is mostly transparent. But if it is high enough it is noticeable. OVER PRESSURE (ÜBER DRUCK) cinematically searches for its manners in our everyday life. It shows truth, personality and surprise. A colourful atmospheric picture to think about.
