Furious under-class drama
18 September 2018 | by info-59956See all my reviews

What happens when you live in the hood, in a high-rise block, and your elevator strikes? It happens nothing. No one cares. No money, no elevator. This thrilling short film portrays three residents of the high-rise block as they struggle in different ways with the damaged elevator and as they are left alone by the persons responsible and the society itself. In the disturbing finale of the film, the elevator leads to more problems and struggles and the viewer is left with the question: what would have been happened if society were fair? BONOBO is a well-composed, fast and fascinating short film that raises issues.
