The Glass Trap / Szklana pulapka (2008, 15 minutes)

Director: Pawel Ferdek

Screenplay: Pawel Ferdek

Director of Photography: Wojciech Staron

Producer: The Polish Filmmakers Association - The Andrzej Munk Studio "The Youth and Film", production manager: Jakub Kosma

Plot: Cash, a car and a mobile phone... as well as a fish. A group of toughs from the suburbs of Warsaw organizes a new entertainment: aggressive aquarium fish-fight shows. The tournament is accompanied by betting. The dense atmosphere of the competition brings out primitive instincts. The Glass Trap is a speedy ride.
