A man follows a group of workers coming for daywork in an industrial area. Soon, he’s stripped from his clothes and identity, dressed in a military uniform and armed. His determination not to fall behind the others is then tested by a series of unsettling events.

Figurant de Jan Vejnar (2019) - UniFrance

How can you be glued to the screen by a short film with the main character who’s mute from the beginning to the end? Ask it to FIGURANT, an incredible short film, able to captivate your attention in an impressive way. The story is pretty peculiar, the stage direction is amazing (some frames and subjective shots are, by themselves, a reason to watch FIGURANT) and the main character’s acting is something incredible.
