Zero

dir. by Mert Amasyalı, Turkey
runtime: 4 min
A 45 years old school janitor enters an empty classroom and is struck by an addition left unanswered on the board. The addition is the same addition he couldn't answer back when he was a 10 years old student. His teacher beat him up because of it and he still carries the scar on his face and on his heart. The janitor is struggling with solving the addition. Not because he doesn't know the answer, how couldn't he after the trauma but because he is afraid? He finally gives an answer: ''0''. Meaning the way he was educated is meaningless and his life after it had no meaning because he was trapped by the trauma.
