Ledge, a textually subtle but visually compelling short film, written, directed and shot by Daniel Blumensev and edited by Tristan Upton, is a film that explores the morality of suicide and the irony of fate.
This is a film Daniel made for the Zurich Film Festival 72' Talent Contest of 2014. Filmmakers were given the theme "By Chance" and had 72 hours to write, shoot and edit a film no longer than 72 seconds, sticking to the theme.

"I created a simple but profound visual style, reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick, in which the entire story, and all of its elements, is told through the composition of my shots." - Daniel Blumensev
