synopsis
What could be easier than robbing a small bookie place on the outskirts of town? It’s during the year’s biggest horse race event and the betting center Washington’s Tobacco looks like the ultimate hit for some fast cash. Mousse is a man of pride and principles and is fed up with living as a second-class citizen. But what happens when he faces principles different to his own?

director
After working professionally as an editor since graduating from Stockholm Film School in 1999, John Hellberg turned his focus to writing and directing. He has directed a number of short films and documentaries. In 2009 his short film "Galetten" won the grand jury prize at Platforma Film Festival, Athens and the April Award at Milano Film Festival. His latest middle lenght film Mousse has earned 21 international awards and competed in SXSW among others.

filmmaker's note
Mousse has many dimensions, but is first and foremost a tribute to the saga. The joy of storytelling is something I often feel is lacking from the short film format in particular. It's all too easy to get lost in the excitement and deliberation of pursuing of the 'perfect' story, loosing sight of the value of entertainment as a means of capturing the attention of the audience. MOUSSE shas many dimensions but the underlying driving force of working on this film has been to emphasis the value of storytelling, and of the story itself”
