Wim Wenders commented, “Little Hands is a short film with a long-lasting effect. It makes you think twice, at least, about what you know about violence and how we look at it. Which makes it a very big small film in my book.”

Rémi Allier’s short film  Little Hands, is in the running for this year’s Live Action Short Film Oscar.

The pic won last year’s César short film award in France. It tells the story of a factory employee (Jan Hammenecker) who, upon discovering that the management is closing down his workplace, kidnaps the toddler of the director in order to negotiate.

It was produced by Benoît Roland (Wrong Men) and Pauline Seigland and Lionel Massol (Film Grand Huit). Wim Wenders and Dario Suter (DCM) are executive producers.
