"Hourglass is a philosophical story about our past, suffering, and the role of the subconscious mind, packed in a cryptic, mind-bending short film."
– Gregory Koefer
TONE: Cryptic, Low-Key
THEME: Suffering & Letting Go
LANGUAGE: English (de / fr sub)
PLANNED PRODUCTION : End 2022 / Beginning 2023
After getting locked in an ominous library, a depressed young guy encounters three manifestations of his inner psyche and soon finds that he needs to sacrifice a part of himself or risk losing them all.
After his father’s death, Tom (27) finds himself trapped in a loop of suffering.
Like every other evening, he walks through the streets of his neighborhood. Like every other evening, he sits on a bench, scrolls through old pictures, cries and waits for the same stranger to pass by at exactly 8:30pm. But tonight Tom’s life turns upside down after the stranger suddenly pushes him off the bench. Before he has the chance to see the face of the stranger, he starts falling into a dark void. Time slows down infinitely, and before Tom realizes what happened, he slams on the floor. Irritated, Tom stands up and tries to follow him. He loses him out of sight and finds himself standing in front of a mysterious door. Tom reaches for the handle and enters a library.`
Tom meets manifestations of his inner psyche. His Ego (Walbert, 63), the Inner Child (11), and the Higher Self (31). After Walberts ominous speech about milk and water, Tom realizes he has been poisoned by Walbert. In order to survive he must find a key before the hourglass is empty.
During his search he understands the meaning behind the library and the characters within. He soon finds out that he must sacrifice a part of himself or risk losing everything if he doesn’t find the key. The closer he comes to a solution the more he starts understanding the strangers identity, and that everything is connected.
Will he be able to break the loop of suffering?
