Der Platz

24m Short, Experimental, Drama, Thriller, History 2022

Stranded in Cold War-era Berlin, a British counterintelligence officer anxiously awaits the day his handlers arrive to collect him. Given no information but a time and a place, he diligently keeps his appointment, watching and waiting for something to happen; even as weeks turn to years … Shot entirely in a warehouse in Brooklyn on a shoestring budget, DER PLATZ is an unconventional spy thriller combining elements of Beckett, Brecht, Jean-Pierre Melville, and Lars von Trier’s DOGVILLE.
