Brief synopsis

“A Great Mistake” is told in five different film genres, each focusing on certain cinematic techniques. The plot: Greg makes a fatal mistake, which leads to a chain of unlucky events: Josh turns into a zombie, Maya goes missing and Greg becomes the police’s prime suspect for her disappearance. Fortunately, Greg meets his time travelling ancestor H.G. Wells, who might just be able to help him correct his slip-up.
Premiere: 12 May 2010 - Short Film Corner (Festival de Cannes)
