Final Stage

Directed by Nicolaas Schmidt
Germany, 2017


A young man on a footbridge, a bus departs, his friend is gone. This is followed by a majestic parade through a shopping centre. This central shot in the film is a fragile balancing act between documentary observation and subtle direction.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
