EINSPRUCH VI (17', Switzerland, 2012)

 

Winner of the Special Jury Award in Clermond-Ferrarnd 2012 and EFA European Film Award nominee of Drama Short Film Festival 2012, ROLANDO COLLA’s film, EINSPRUCH VI, addresses the issue of the violations of immigrants' human rights, being based on a real incident: an African asylum-seeker whose rejected application leads to his deportation from Switzerland and his tragic death. The filmmaker's radical daring choice to film the entire story from the point of view of the protagonist has a powerful identification effect, making the audience deeply resonate emotionally with the main character's drama.

"The story of a deportation that ended with the tragic death of an asylum seeker in March 2010. In the film, the camera itself is this asylum seeker, and what it captures is a subjective view of reality." (ROLANDO COLLA)

 

"In EINSPRUCH VI, the audience sees the events through the main character's eyes, as if they are experiencing the events themselves. And since the camera portrays the internal state of the character in an attempt to bring the spectators into the equation as subjective participants, empathy becomes the key word in this film. Details such as altered images corresponing the the main character`s subjective perspective, his voice, his accent, his heavy breathing manage to build a solid, yet, until the last minute of the film, faceless identity to which the spectator can easily relate and empathise." (Andrei Luca, BIEFF 2012)
