Sebastian is eager to show off his latest acquisition to a cadre of eccentric — and soon-to-be-jealous — art collectors, even hiring his photographer nephew to capture the unveiling for posterity. But when the “Schlimmer” turns up missing, accusations of theft begin flying, and long-simmering resentments begin to undermine the group’s cohesion.
“Schlimmer” — a mystery — was made as part of the 48 Hour Film Project 2004. The entire piece was created over the weekend of May 7–9, 2004, and first screened at the AFI Silver Theatre on Friday, May 14.
