Director: Peter Bolte
Walden Pink sits disheveled on a park bench as the world drifts by him. The rest of his day is met with one unfortunate confrontation after another by the likes of religious proselytizers, process servers, angry bartenders and abrasive barflies. These conversations only distract him from finding a peace and clarity to this repetitive and draining existence. Just as Walden’s day began, his day ends seated on a park bench in a state of bitterness and self-loathing.
SaMo Indie says:
This unique short film from writer / director Peter Bolte is absolutely rich with depth and dimension. Bolte makes great use of light and space, with the black and white cinematography serving as a perfect palette for the disheveled lump of the main protagonist. However, perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of this carefully crafted short film are the interactions Walden Pink has with the other characters in his peculiar world. In the end, Walden Pink is so much more than your average short, it’s a conversation piece that will stick with you, long after you’ve seen the film.
