The Silent Man | short
* full film upon request *

Very loosely based on the legendary grieving process of early 20th century painter Oskar Kokoschka from his great love Alma Malher through the figure of a home made doll - Charlotte Colbert has reinterpreted the story in a contemporary context making it about a woman grieving a lost love through the figure of a life size male doll.
