Family affairs

Shorts Attack in July 2024

7 films in 90 minutes – with German subtitles


The dear family! Sometimes we go backwards through life, sometimes an era ends, generations compete with and against each other, and political issues shape cohesion. Children are portrayed, parents are reflected. Can a family explode? In Möbius Trip, this happens in the car.
