Director: Björn Kämmerer, Karoline Meiberger
Cinematographer: Björn Kämmerer
Producer: Björn Kämmerer

Metsik vestern, mis kasutab loo jutustamisel montaaži võluvahendeid. Relvastatud rööv hoitakse ära kaameraga ja üks filmi kangelane satub grotesksesse konflikti, sest ründaja ei saa enam välja tegevuse kordumisest.

Western-found footage, manipulated to the point of being unable to convey a plot: an armed robbery is prevented through the camera, which brings one figure into a grotesque conflict. The armed confrontation gets stuck in a pounding staccato, while the public remains disinformed.

Björn Kämmerer (s.1977 Stralsundis) kasvas üles Berliinis. 2002. aastal astus ta Linzi Kunstiülikooli Austrias ning alates 2005. aastast õpib Björn Viini Kaunite Kunstide Akadeemias.
