    Cataract (2005)
    Film (Short and Drama) Writer In part Buddhist koan, in part urban love story, the film poses the question of unconditional love, and suggests that there may be an answer. Set in a lonely Berlin petrol station, it tells of the chance encounter between two strangers - a young Turkish woman who works at the petrol station and an enigmatic Russian immigrant who walks in one night. Abruptly he opens a conversation which leads them to embark on a fantastic journey, and to an end that no one is prepared for. Written by Production information
