Shorts Attack in February 2022
10 films in 80 minutes
Snails cast a spell on a businessman, huge things surprise in a small town, a big city mobilises against the flood of cars and there is resistance to state power: Shorts Attack in February follows quirky urban trends. New drugs are introduced, artificial intelligence is being tested, the residents of a house try their hand at everyday life, a Zoom meeting is under pressure to succeed and there’s time for the creative at the Lockdown. Even Bert Brecht can bring enlightenment!
What’s big, grey, noisy, makes a mess and blocks the view of an entire waterfront town? Without giving anything away: It’s not a whale.
In our world, we take drugs to find relief and peace beyond the hectic pace and chaos of modern life. In „Angst“, it’s exactly the opposite.
