A short film that will challenge the way your initial assumptions about people and their actions
8 March 2013 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This 11 minute short took years to create, and the time they invested in it payed off. The epic struggles the production of this film entailed just to get it to the big screen (due in large part to its controversial nature)could probably be a film in and of itself.

One of the best short films I've seen, Punched (Abgestempelt)challenges the assumptions we make about people and their actions and serves as important political commentary in a world of ever-increasing levels of profiling by the security agencies charged with keeping us safe. However, one of the messages of Punched (Abgestempelt), is that our safety and security might be better served, not by an ever vigilant security force, but by our own compassion.
