Shorts Attack in January 2023

6 films in 85 minutes


Full of energy into life: Driven by a dance-loving fairy, a boy outdoes himself (Tank Fairy), a woman, on the other hand, has to deflate properly (Über Wasser), while Dad’s car is well suited for a road trip (Datsun) and a boy in Iran comes out as a girl. Furthermore, there is a delivery service revolt (Platform) and a culinary dance magic (with Taglioni). 6 films in 85 minutes start the new year full of action.
