PASS
PASSPORT in English

This 15 minute 35 mm short tells the story of Anthony, played by Nigerian Lanre Odubelar, who loses his passport in Berlin and goes through bureaucratic and social hell trying to get it back. Confronted by racism at every turn, Anthony has lost his identity and the protection his passport affords until he gets in back. With a comic touch, Pass (or you donít pass) reveals the blatant and sometimes insidious racism in Berlin, a city still plagued by its prejudice past.

In English and German with English subtitles.

Produced by Jurgen Bruning and written by Penelope Buitenhuis and Olaf "Pass" was screened at numerous European film festivals and broadcast on Sat 1 in Germany.
The film is available at producer@ottothezombie.de
