If one wanted to exaggerate, one could say, that, indeed, everything is connected with everything. But that is not entirely true. The grand world net is spun with infinite delicacy…
In the living room of the Klose family invisible twines are running together, which, when someone is handling any item in the room, cause big and small events to happen in the world. Thus, the Klose family influences the fate of our world every day without having the faintest idea about it. Only a certain gentleman called Mr. Payk knows about the importance of this room, and, taking advantage of Klose’s daughter Simone, he succeeds in entering this secret place of power…
With extreme care for photography and colors, Pauline Roenneberg, director of this 33-minute long medium-length film, gives life to the universe of German writer Kurt Kusenberg, whose 1949 short story is the basis for the film. Both characters and scenarios might remind the audience of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, but Roenneberg manages to build her own imagery.
Pauline Roenneberg (1984) started her studies in the USA and moved to Cologne in 2004 to work in a famous German TV series as an assistant director. In 2005 she started her studies of Literature, History and Theatre at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. Since 2007 she has been studying Direction at the Film & Television University in Munich, specializing in documentary film. Her second movie, At the end of the meadow, received the Best Student Film Award and the Scenec Festival in Holland, 2010.
A certain room is her first fiction film and will compete in the Official Selection of the 7th edition of the International Medium-length Film Festival La Cabina that will take place from the 6th to the 16th of November at the Filmoteca de Valencia.
