THE BIG PICTURE, a short film. 

While seeing the origin of Johan, we hear the orginin of Ashraf. The public is exposed to both histories and the coincidental encounter  in a supermarket that follows.

A short fiction film about how two family histories cross paths in a brief yet explosive, everyday encounter full of misconceptions.

I wrote the screenplay for this short film, directed by Teddy Cherim and produced by Marten van Warmerdam at Topkapi films. The Big Picture was shown on the Go Short Festival and the Nederlands Film Festival.
