Summary

Kafka's The Burrow

"Kafka's The Burrow" is based on the unfinished novel of the same name by Franz Kafka, which has never previously been adapted for film. It tells the story of a man in his prime who, having seemingly achieved everything, has entrenched himself in his burrow, a fortress-like apartment complex. But no matter how hard he tries to ignore it, there it is: the world outside. Surveillance cameras should ensure his safety and security, but the nightmare outside can‘t be stopped: they know he is there, they want him, they want his wealth... and they are on their way.

"Kafka's The Burrow" is a film about isolation and dissociation, fear, and loneliness in our time.
