A depressed man uses a contraption to utilize his tears for good. “Living with the NEVER-MIND,™” by German director Konstantin Enste, is a clever fake infomercial selling a product that puts sadness to use. A satisfied customer Frank explains how it works: first, he cries, then his tears funnel into plastic tubes, which are then used to water plants. That’s it. Except what happens he’s no longer sad? Under two minutes long, it’s a stylish, lighthearted comedy with great set design and zippy compositions. -KA. Director: Konstantin Enste. Cast: Alexander Rung. DP/editor/producer: Konstantin Enste. Set assistant and sound recording: Florian Kluck. Sound mixing and sound design: Gregor von Sivers.
