The Long Night of Short Film I

Weltspiegel, Fri 11.11. | 19:00

This year, eleven films from a total of thirteen production countries will once again take us into exciting worlds of different colors. In two programs, the filmmakers show all their skills in the short genre. With lightness, wit and irony, they dare to take a look at past times and seriously address the problems of the present. It is about relationships, friendships, drugs, violence and therapies of a very special kind. Great cinema from Eastern Europe, in which humor is not neglected.

Films in the programme:

With its humorously blustering tone, this short film, captured in the style of Georgian films from the 1930s, tells the story of the revolutionary introduction of the television. In a series of almost preposterous episodes, marriages and friendships fall apart and a chase begins for the last available unit.
