This is a retelling of Pascal Flörks’ grandfather’s life, a man who was once a World War II soldier. Pieces of his life are narrated using his family’s photo archive, and based on the stories his grandfather told him.
He’s a gentle giant in the photos, perhaps even a legend. He was a soldier, he was a friend, and he was a man who loved cars, boats, and his gun.
Even as he’s now gone, one senses that this is a man who left a deep and lasting impression he’s left.
Here’s the story.
This short film was Pascal’s graduation project from Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg. It travelled to over 150 festivals worldwide and has won many accolades for its storytelling.
