In existential crisis
Does the film Apfelmus (Alexander Gratzer, 2019) offer the answer to restlessness? The answer to slow down the existential thoughts in your mind? The way to stop the philosophical issues racing through your head? We think it does. Apfelmus is an absurd, but funny animation film about existential conversations between polar bears and birds. The birds ask themselves what part they play in life and the polar bears imagine how life as a bird would be. The easy conversations between the animals are almost calming, but still really crazy to look at.
For the real cynic
It might be the cold, the dark or just their nature, but the Norwegians have become experts on ‘cynical cinema’. Let a mockumentary confuse and entertain you and enjoy the sarcasm in it. Coldly stand-offish or efficiently inquisitive, these Norwegian shorts show our worst at its best. You’ll see in the program ‘Cynical Comedy from the North’.
The ‘Late Night: What did I just watch’ is screened at Wednesday 1 April. The film Apfelmus is part of the program ‘Late Night: What did I just watch’, but is also screened in ‘ST.4 Just A Little Patience’ on Friday 3 April. The program ‘Cynical Comedy from the North’ is screened at Thursday 2 April en Sunday 5 April.
