'BACKSTORY' Is A Short Film On Mortality That Became An Immediate Masterpiece
Lured in by the visuals, I wasn't prepared to go on the journey of what "Backstory" had to offer. It connected with me immediately and it was too late. I was on a thrill-ride through a life that seemed eerily familiar. I can't say more, but promise me you'll watch this.
It's a piece you won't forget and it will be the best 8 minutes of your day.
It has already won 33 awards, to give you the scope of their accomplishments.
'BACKSTORY' was shot in Germany in 17 shooting days over a period of 1,5 years. It has been screened at more than 110 festivals worldwide and, so far, has won more than 30 international awards. Our love goes out to all the wonderful people who worked so hard on this film for such a long time! :-)
