Compartment 4

Three young men are sitting together in a compartment. Three characters that couldn’t be less alike. Two of them are telling their story, one has none. Two of them see blurry, one sees clearly. Two of them cannot remember, one still knows everything.

Compartment 4 is a short film that tries to follow men without memories. It tries to capture them, lock up their consciousness in one room, but eventually it will lose them to to the black hole of the past. We follow these men through 4 rooms: the compartment, a shady poker room, Mia’s flat and the psychiatric hospital. The closer we get to the hospital, the easier it is to see what is real. The clearer the vision of reality becomes, the stronger the chains of consciousness tighten.
And two men without memories are sitting towards each other in a compartment.

Director Biography - Noah Rosa, Aaron Kilercioglu

I was born in vienna, austria on august 27 1995. "Compartment 4" is my second film ever done and the first film I ever directed. I started acting when I was 16. With 18 I finished together with friends my first short film "CrossTheLine". Through shooting this first movie, I learned about the beauty of filmmaking. Right now I am 20 years old and I am planning on applying for different universities to study directing.

Director Statement

We live our everyday life observing it through our own eyes, assuming our reality is as true as the steps we take. But what if our truth is another person's lie? What if one man's reality is another's dream? This is the world of Tyler and Zenon. Two men who's imaginations are as extensive and repetitive as a train track. Two men who's search for their own truth leads them to the creeping black hole of the past. And the train keeps on going.
