Authority

Germany 2009, 16’ | Director, Contact Marit Östberg | DoP Leon Rad | Music Bonnie Li, Sexy Sushi, Kritzkom | Cast Bock and Max

A woman is caught by a police officer in the act of painting graffiti on a wall. She runs from the scene, with the police in hot pursuit. Perhaps the police officer knows her own fate when she sets off on the chase. Perhaps she obeys to the will of the graffiti artist. Clearly, somebody needs to be punished. In Authority sex is a dirty game, a beautiful fairy tale, it’s a threat, a promise.
