The Hangman at Home

Denmark, France, Canada2021animated14'International Short Film Competition

Red, blue, yellow, green, purple. Five rooms, five protagonists and five stories intertwined with each other are slowly gaining momentum and building up tension. A pregnant woman bolts the door, a man goes to sleep among flying bombs, a father is playing with his daughter – each of them is caught in an intimate, emotion-laden moment. We are peeping at them, like at the hangman from Carl Sandburg’s poem – what is the hangman thinking about when returning home from work?
