Otto Banovits' short film Dark Chamber/Camera Obscura is based on the true event of 71 illegal refugees who tragically died trapped in the back of a truck by a border crossing in Sweden.

Artistic Statement

My initial idea was to use an indirect cinematic representation in order to communicate the otherwise incommunicable. As a filmmaker, I tried to apply the visual language that cinema possesses by not showing anything explicitly but to rather offer suggestions.
