GER 2016, 30 min

A disturbing role play.


SPRING is a companion piece to Omer Fast’s earlier work CONTINUITY. SPRING examines the same middle-aged German couple who hire young men to act as their son. The story revolves around a teenaged boy and an older male escort who are both engaged by the couple and whose paths cross violently on the streets of a wealthy suburb. A portrait of family life in which roles are played with perversion and pleasure.
