Pretzel - Short Film

"Everyone has a great idea — until the Internet happens". 

Pretzel was shortlisted for The Young Director Award in Cannes 2016. 
Pretzel was selected for FLUX at The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and at the TED Dream talks in Toronto, Cananda.


Kudos to director Ewoudt Boonstra for the incredible amount of effort he must have put in to this great-looking, New Wave-aping short, all for the impressively slight pay-off of a knowingly silly joke about everything having been done already. Bathos has never looked so good.

“Pretzel is a film about beer, pretzels, ideas and the internet,” reads the subtitle to Ewoudt Boonstra’s new film, like it’s as simple and as understated as that. And it kind of is, but as one and a half minute musings in black and white go it’s so perfectly executed and well timed, narrated by a gravelly voiced Scotand acted out by a fresh beautiful young thing, that we think it deserves some glory.
It's Nice That
