The Confessionist

You open your eyes. It’s pitch black. You don’t know where you are. Hard concrete under your feet - you’re sitting! But no sense of place. A clock ticking & then everything goes bright.
The Confessionist is a Point of View comedy short film which looks at how two officers handle a highly dangerous arsonist. After what has been hours of interrogation, they try one more card up their sleeve to get the arsonist to talk. A confession. The only thing is, they each have their own unique ways in getting them to talk.
