Two brothers from a suburb in Northern England come under the influence of the right-wing “English Defence League”, known for its vociferous anti-Islam stance. What starts as curiosity becomes a trip into the world of tough boys with outspoken attitudes for the older one and a nightmare for the 13-year-old Jack. With a feature-film-like camera the director captures the battle of wills between more than two different characters with impressive precision. Cornelia Klauß

94-year-old Doris calls the BBC to report a great storm because she doesn’t hear the cuckoo’s call. And she’s right. The weather experts are astonished.

94-year-old Doris calls the BBC to report a great storm because she doesn’t hear the cuckoo’s call. And she’s right. The weather experts are astonished. Later her son explains how this came about in a (real) radio interview. The interview in itself is already amusing, but the animation gives us a particularly refreshing view of the life of a woman who knows the weather.

No Signal Katharina Huber

The violence is planned. Whether as a protest or simply a statement, the manifesto and the stone to throw are ready. Now it’s a matter of waiting, killing time and mentally preparing for the confrontation.

The violence is planned. Whether as a protest or simply a statement, the manifesto and the stone to throw are ready. Now it’s a matter of waiting, killing time and mentally preparing for the confrontation. Like a warrior. But the fear won’t go away and every sound, every movement reminds you of what may be about to happen.

Territory Eleanor Mortimer

Gibraltar seen from the monkeys’ point of view. Apparently amazed, they watch the ceaseless activities of their human cohabitants but refuse to be driven away by construction noises or blow pipes.

Gibraltar seen from the monkeys’ point of view. Apparently amazed, they watch the ceaseless activities of their human cohabitants but refuse to be driven away by construction noises or blow pipes. With no respect for the British monarchy they swing from lanterns and slide down rain pipes. Intelligent montage and careful sound design reveal the double occupation of the rock as well as the double meaning of the term “colony”. Who actually owns this territory?

When you open an old book you get a whiff of more than its contents. There’s the smell of old times, the feel of the once familiar. This playful book page animation uses various techniques to make grandfather’s notes come alive. Practical tips on popular courting in the Polish-Byelorussian border region. We learn that the young people were too shy to talk for themselves, but that the rules were clear. How complicated the world is today.
