He who reflects his past, influences his future,
He who controls his present, manipulates his past,
He who wills his future, shapes his present.
One man, one bondage: the bondage to time. Every soul ages, willingly or unwillingly.
Roland is unwilling, but this bondage overwhelms him. He feels time slipping through
his fingers. How can he defend himself? He cannot. Time marches inexorably
forwards. He is helpless, powerless, and ill-equipped. It’s this situation, from which he
cannot escape. It confronts him with the three tenses of life: the future, the present,
and the past. And Roland’s mind is made a tornado!
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Max Koller is a young Austrian author. He was born 1990, in Vienna and grew up in Krems an
der Donau. In 2010 Max took a course at the filmschule-wien. His first film „The last drag“ had
its origin there, but soon the project broke the mould. Writing and directing fascinated him
since he was a little boy and grew to be his passions. Besides telling stories he studies
Mathematics and Chemistry and teaches at a school for young refugees. Science and social
projects are an important source of inspiration, although most stories are about emotional or
psychological aspects of life.
