What is this project all about?

One stressed businessman, one blood-thirsty traffic island in the middle of a forest and one year in 12 minutes. Our short film 90 DEGREES NORTH questions the belief in and the desperate clutching to systems – be it work, capitalism or simply: a common traffic-light operating system. Red - wait, green - go.

In the style of a grotesque modern fairytale, 90 DEGREES NORTH tells the story of a businessman held captive by a demonic traffic island for a year. In order to survive, he has to rethink his life. Choose between egotism and love.

90 DEGREES NORTH transports you into its unique, bizarre world filled with humour and fantasy - no trash, but magic realism.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

With the production of 90 DEGREES NORTH, we want to establish our recently founded production company K17 Films on the film market and continue the success of the previous short films directed by Detsky Graffam. 90 DEGREES NORTH winning the Pitch Award at the Bulgarian film festival In The Palace was the first step in that direction. Various Letters of Intent from distributors prove that the film's access to an international TV and festival audience is realistic.

90 DEGREES NORTH is not going to be an art film limited to a very specific audience. Just like myths and fairytales are understood and loved the world over, we want 90 DEGREES NORTH to touch a broad international audience.

Why would you support this project?

90 DEGREES NORTH is a black comedy with great international potential. It deals with the universal idea of getting stuck in life, but this interpretation has never been seen before. Winning the Pitch Award and various international Letters of Intent prove this. Our team is made up of passionate, experienced film buffs who will create a mystical world in Brandenburg's dark pine forests. This is a project that stands out like a traffic island in the middle of nowhere.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?

A man-eating traffic island is our main location as well as our secret protagonist. This traffic island does not only swallow up blood, but in pre-production also a lot of dosh. For of course it has to look real. But that costs. If we manage to hit our financial target, we can afford to build the traffic island as planned. And our entire film rests on the quality of the island.

Should we manage to get more than we dream of, we can use the rest to improve production conditions for the entire team significantly.

Who are the people behind the project?

A multi-coloured mix of experienced filmmakers, creative free spirits and voluntary helpers keen to get an insight into filmmaking stands behind this project. The main faces behind 90 DEGREES NORTH are: Detsky Graffam (Scriptwriter & Director) and Marianne Graffam (Producer) with their production company K17 Films founded in Berlin in 2013.
