Inspired by Wim Wender’s ‘Etat Des Choses’ (the state of things), and stemming directly from visual artist Kurt D’Hasseleer’s work on K.O.D., Red Room views the waiting time and idle moments spent by a director and his team when shooting a film. In a villa in the middle of nowhere, a young film maker and his team shoot the first scenes of a political thriller. Suddenly, the producer disappears for no given reason. The shooting is suspended and the team, at first full of great expectations, slowly goes adrift. Red Room unveils the frailties of youth in search of meaning.
