Rats With Wings
Filmfest 2006

Chris, a petty thief, plans an armed robbery doomed to failure. His girlfriend Elena tries everything to keep him from ruining both their lives. As the hot August Sunday passes, Chris gets drunker and drunker. The newly aquired gun in his pocket gives him a feeling of power as he drifts through the neighborhood park looking for trouble. Elena sees the tragedy unfold, but seems unable to get through to him... "RATS WITH WINGS was entirely shot in public places in my immediate Berlin neighborhood, using a seamless mix of actors and non-professionals. We drew upon methods of street casting and improvisation to give the film the documentary feel it needed." David Jazay
