»The Golden Bough« tells the story of David Gularski (Alexander Ritter), an unemployed man looking desperately for a new job. After months of countless futile interviews, he realizes that there may be a method to the eternal rejection he encounters: he is always being interviewed by the same man (Timur Isik) and apparently, it is that man’s job to keep David from ever getting one. David resorts to desperate measures to remove the obstacle from his path. A drama with a dark sense of humor, based on a short story by Booker-Prize-winning novelist Salman Rushdie. In competition at Oxford FF 2013 and Hollywood FF 2013.
