Timo, the youngest of a Greek community of Funfair workers, will have to face the hardest winter together with his loved ones.
Timo’s winter is a touching short film where grief is expressed by everything that the characters aren’t able to say to each other. Timo is going through the hardest time of his life, as he must witnessing his beloved mother’s last days in bad due to an illness that is never properly named. Timo’s father holds the budern on his shoulders and as everyone around Timo tries to protect him from the distress caused by his mother’s illness, we follow this young kid as he tries to process what’s going on around him. The short is spoken in greek and that adds value to the atmosphere. It’s always hard to convey difficult emotions within few minutes of short, but the screenwriter and director is able through a crafted work of emotional narrative built over key moments of silence and helped by a production design – a travelling funfair during winter, with no lights on or customers cheering, waiting for the good season to arrive.
