FLIES.

MICHAEL MACGARRY | 10 MIN | SOUTH AFRICA | 2014

Set in Pretoria, South Africa in 1995, the film concerns an elderly Afrikaans former-civil servant (municipal architect) whom – years after the death of his family in an accident – is the sole inhabitant of a large, derelict downtown apartment complex he once designed. When he accidentally witnesses a political assassination, he is forced into a violent confrontation with modernity, and is ultimately killed by his own building.
