A GENERAL DISAPPOINTMENT 

NARRATIVE SHORT

Directed by: Serge Garcia
Cinematography: Simon Köcher
Length: 25:00 min
Format: 16mm, 35mm

Synopsis:
Ordinary scenes meet stories told through text that wander through a night at a sex club, domestic duties at home, and the existential aftermath after a failed attempt to go on a date. A General Disappointment bends the quotidian and invites us to ponder over the systemic failures inherent to capitalist societies, and how vain their promises of happiness and self-fulfillment are.
