Fuse by Shadi Adib Fuse by Shadi Adib

“Based on a short story by Sadeq Chubak. A mousetrap snaps shut, a market place awakens. A group of men heatedly discuss how to kill the animal in the little box. One after the other, they try to trump each other’s sadistic fantasies, and even a stranger’s suggestion to let the creature loose, turns out to be a sick manipulation. But as the macabre game unfolds and spirals out of control, both victim and tormentor suffer the same fate.”

Graduation film by Shadi Adib made at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, 2018.

Screened at over 130 festivals, and winner of 10 festival awards.
