The second edition of a collaboration between up-and-coming filmmakers and authors takes you on an emotional rollercoaster – from the nightmares of childhood to an never ending tennis match, from a road trip to yourself to an apartment filled with memories, a journey which takes you in the end even to “paradise” and the origins of mankind. Be prepared never to see or to hear what you expect...

The eight films provide an exciting insight into contemporary experimental film and poetry and invite the viewer to explore new artistic positions. The avant-garde shorts were developed within the framework of an OSTPOL program under the mentorship of Cathy de Haan, Aline Helmcke, Franka Sachse and Vera Schmidt.

The filmmakers and authors are:

Nick Teplov & Katia Sophia Ditzler for A|C|G|T; Andrea Rüthel & Susanna Berivan for ALIKE; Justine Bauer & André Patten for THE BOTANIST; Juliane Franke & Anne Oltscher for EVERGREEN; Annegret Ehrhardt & Linda Achberger for GO STOP GONE; Jonathan-David Wedler & Magdalena Kotzurek for HINGE; Sandra Barth & Anna Schöning for PARADISE WITH PAVILION; Charlotte Eifler & Hieu Hoang for WOMEN FEEDING MACHINES.
