Mr. Kolpert

Chicago Premiere

Ugly, violent, and extremely funny Mr. Kolpert takes a hard, raw look at what happens to people who find themselves so numbed by their comfortable and conventional lives that they are willing to do whatever it takes to feel something – anything – again.

Midwest Premiere!

A delightfully morbid black comedy with a nod to Hitchcock’s Rope. Ralf and Sarah are bored. They decide to invite a couple of friends round for drinks and pizza. To spice things up, Ralf pretends there’s a dead body in their trunk – the dead body of one of their work colleagues. While they are waiting for the pizza, they play party games and discuss films, but nothing can cover up the tense atmosphere between the two couples. And maybe Ralf is not pretending after all…
