Watch - Cold Star

A public swimming pool is transformed into a utopia where sexual orientation and gender binaries does not matter. German director Kai Stänicke describes his 7 minute short film Cold Star as a mixture of a short and a music video. A hybrid, that connects the emotions of a short with beats and lyrics of the music. The film is an appeal for acceptance of your own and others sexual identity.

The sublime cinematography combine with the short being dialog-free is what really makes this work for me. I love it and the music from the German band Din [a] Tod.
