The Sound of Unexpected Death

Alexander Bak Sagmo, Denmark, 2019

30 min.DK/Short fiction

It's a completely normal night – until it isn’t. Six seemingly innocuous scenarios serve as the prelude to a horrific, unexpected terror. We peek into the everyday lives of various individuals and only at the very end do we find out what has happened as we hear the sound of unexpected death.
