Keine Freunde Jie Lu

Friendship that’s not friendship and dependencies you have to break free from. This music video tells a mean story – beautifully and delicately animated with tea leaves.

SexPol Jörg Weidner

Yes, you can even animate magazine articles: in this case four texts that appeared in the “Magazine of Political Psychology and Sexual Economy” published by psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich between 1934 and 1938 as the official mouthpiece of the SexPol movement.

A few seconds and we know: The next few minutes will be oppressive, dirty and mean. We follow a play-worn doll through five acts of her bizarre stop motion journey through the sexual subconscious. The last thing one would expect is that this visually brilliant video was shot in the filmmaker’s own flat.
