Pickles / Krastavci – Short fiction film

Berta is an old lady, who lies to herself and the world. Not only she lies that her husband is still alive, but also lies about the way she earns her living. She uses all her energy for maintainance of the lie, so there is nothing left.

Gospa Berta je starejša gospa, ki laže. S tem, ko laže sebi, laže tudi svetu. Ne zgolj o eksistenci svojega moža, temveč tudi o njenem preživljanju, torej vlaganju kumaric. Laž kot taka zahteva vzdrževanje, ki je možno samo z novimi lažmi. Zato naredi vse, da bi svet prepričala, da njeno življenje dejansko je takšno kot so njene želje, da bi bilo. Njena namera in trud sta usmerjena v ohranjanje laži.
