CGiii Comment

Is it a short film? Is is a music video?

It doesn't matter...what it is...is brave, bold and beautiful.


Watch...

Cold Star from Kai Stänicke on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

A boy experiences new desires while watching a man at an indoor swimming pool. Forced up the diving platform by a rowdy gang, he receives unexpected help.

Cold Star is a mixture of short and music video. A hybrid, that connects the emotions of a short with beats and lyrics of music. The film is an appeal for acceptance of your own and others sexual identity.
