An entire life is broken down into 8 minutes in Joschka Laukeninks’s, Backstory, an extremely compelling short narrative following one man’s story from birth to death. A film based around the notion that everything we have in life will inevitably shift and change, only to one day end. Though bleak and a bit morbid, this short is extremely moving and exciting with its fast paced chronological trip through life, highlighting both the best and worst moments as experienced from one point of view, but affecting many throughout different walks of life. A profoundly moving piece, Backstory is as much a work of art as it is an examination of life as we know it.
Backstory is an official selection of the 2017 New York City Independent Film Festival and 2017 Best Super Short Film winner.
