Movie Review: Screenshots: Asian Short Films QCinema International Film Festival 2015

 Director Sorayos Prapapan is invited to present his penultimate short film at the Winterthur Festival. He runs into an Afghan director friend, who has become a political refugee in Switzerland. Over subtle still shots of the Swiss landscape, his voice resonates and transports us between humor and the reality of political facts in an exciting and rich cinematic experience.

My Verdict: 3.5/5
