The Rules

The Rules is a film about all the rules that I have at home. Is the toilet lid supposed to be open or closed? Should you remove your shoes upon entering? The most natural thing for oneself can be uncomfortable for someone else. Everybody has a concealed set of rules and becomes annoyed when someone violates them. In the film I take the viewer through all the places in my home where a guest can go wrong. At the same time I visit places in my mind from where the rules stem.
