The Long Night of Short Films II

Weltspiegel, Fri 11.11. | 21:30

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:

In The Circle
