Pedro Pires‘ second emotionally-riveting short film Hope (the first being Danse Macabre) depicts an army general on his deathbed, recalling the horrifying and violent past he has lived through. Official synopsis as follows:
“The fragmented violence of war seen through the eyes of a General on his deathbed. A mind accustomed to a life on the battlefield surrenders to a stream of consciousness, mixing death, brutality, and finally, one last gesture of hope.
The film is based on the award winning play Jimmy, créature de rêve by Marie Brassard.”
