Brief synopsis

The film is a statement about stories, history, perception and cinema itself. It is shot in one take.

Endsieg – ein kurzer Film über das Ende von tausend Jahren. Die letzten Tage des 2. Weltkriegs. Ein einsamer Aussenposten des Dritten Reiches im Gebirge. Der Nazitraum ist ausgeträumt. Trotzdem wird ein angeblicher Deserteur erschossen. Dient das offensichtlich sinnlose Opfer einer anderen Art von Sieg – keinem militärischen, sondern einem persönlichen?

“He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”
George Orwell
