The Devil’s Pawn is the latest short film from award winning director Chris Heck. It tells the story of Johann, a young man who’s soul rests on a single game of chess with the Devil.
It was created as a homage to the great German Expressionist films of the 1920’s. As a way of honoring those filmmakers, every stage of production was executed as authentically to that period as possible.
The film is now making it’s way around the U.S. festival circuit and garnering a lot of attention. More info can be found here. Watch the short below!
