The Funeral of Harald Kramer

On his first day of work, a young mortician is told the story of Harald Kramer, a man who suffered a head injury and appeared to be dead, but wasn’t. Harald could hear though and, due to the excellent chili his wife had served him the night before his apparent death, be heard, but still no one thought to check if he was still alive. Despite his doubts that such a story could be true, the young mortician can’t keep from asking to hear more. Won the Prix Interculturel at the 2013 Munich International Festival of Film Schools.
