Exclusive: Kristoffer Martin for ‘OROS’


The film set in aworld where even death becomes a provider. In a country where a cadaver may serve as license for holding a sakla operation (illegal gambling) in wakes, people may exploit the dead in order to generate income from the profits of gambling, and possibly pay for its burial. In Oros, a funeral parlor owner sells an unidentified body to Makoy, a kasero in a saklaan, who, along with his reluctant brother, Abet, set the stage for a three-week long fake wake holding the illegal saklaan. The sakla personnel deals with everyone involved, including Linda, an impoverished homeowner, as they agree upon a fictional story which will “legitimize” the wake.

Back story: I volunteered to the be still man (the one in charge of taking stills on set) for my friend’s entry to a local film festival. I didn’t get to fulfill my duties because of certain factors, but that won’t stop me from doing what I can to help a friend out.

So here’s a Taking a Break exclusive of Kristoffer Martin, one of Oros‘s stars, talking about his experiences with the film:
