Directed by Niki Lindroth von Bahr
Part of Shortfilm competition 2
Thursday, September 21 at 3pm, Bytowne Cinema
Sunday, September 24 at 1pm, Bytowne Cinema

The Burden was just awarded Best Short by the TIFF short cuts jury with the motivation:

"Whimsical but tragic, imaginative and just plain weird, this is exactly what one can expect from a Scandinavian musical with fish in bath robes singing out their existentialist crisis. This is a film that stands out in this program and any film program it will ever be part of.”
