"Meet me In Berlin"
After being hit by a car, a thirty-something American awaits an eye operation in a Berlin hospital. He calls the only other person he knows in Berlin, a female Icelandic ex-patriate whom he involuntarily stood up because of the accident. To his surprise, she too is confined to her apartment following recent knee surgery. In their isolation they begin to rely on one another’s voices as the only relief; and for a brief moment they connect and share an intimacy that defies the physical space between them. [2007, 18min]
