The mood in a teachers’ lounge changes when the reason for one teacher’s nickname is discovered. The Owl is a slow, cataclysmic journey into the dark hearts of people trying to have a good time together. When we lose our balance, how far will we go to regain stability?
Simon Pontén and Joakim Behrman are a newly formed writing and directing team from Sweden. After having spent many years in advertising, The Owl is the duo's first short together. With a love for the uncomfortable and the tragic, they always try to make funny films. Tragically, they haven’t succeeded yet.
