Die entformte Tochter
Short film - 2018 - 10 min.
"When I see pictures of my mother when she was young, I see a woman who doesn’t need me. When I wasn’t born yet, her art was everything to her. I became important only later. I would have liked to meet her back then. Or would I? She seems so independent. Would she have liked me?" Hesitantly emerging, dreamy images complement the conversation between daughter and mother about the making of the film. "I still don’t know what you’re looking for", the mother says. "The truth?" "No." "That’s good."

Bei mir bist du schön
In this melancholic animation film, a sweet grandma looks forward to her granddaughter´s visit. But apparently the feelings are not mutual. Before the visit is over, grandma must have mended the close ties.
Short drama about a teenager who wants nothing more than being recognised by his father, the president of a notorious motorcycle club. Smouldering aggression and the inability to communicate drive them apart.
KORT! - Tienminutengesprek
In this brutal finger-paint comedy, a teacher vents all her frustrations during the umpteenth consultation with a parent, who does not have a clue what her job really entails.
In this short, surrealist 3D animation full of neon colours, a self-confident criminal is shockingly confronted with his atrocious crime.
KORT! - Mensendagen
A frog is reborn in a human being’s body. While this man, Allard, grows alienated from his familiar surroundings, the frog inside looks for a way back to the marsh he came from.
What it feels like when you are forced to leave your familiar surroundings in a rush, plunge into an uncertain flight to reach freedom and no longer live in fear is shown by this unconventional dance movie, in a very recognisable setting.
