ABOUT THE PROJECT
A young man struggling with his addiction escapes reality and the struggle of his past.
Inspired by The Little Match Girl, a short story by H.C. Andersen. Elements from the story are explored through the visions of the main protagonist where in conjunction with his real life we see him battle with his demons and his past. This is a journey through the mind of a young man lost in his life.
Directed by Ragnar Ingi Magnússon, the short film Matches won first place in sound and third in best short film of the graduation year of 2019 from DBS Berlin film school.
