Shortcutz Berlin – Session #12 (April 21)

This Week’s Competition Shorts are:

Short #1: “Manolo” by Robert Bohrer
Synopsis: Manolo’s mother wants him out of the house, his cousin wants him out of his way and Linda, this Summer’s princess, wants something too, if only he knew what. On a Sunny afternoon at the pool, the 12-year-old Manolo has to face his fears: will he stand up to his big cousin Mike, the notorious splash-diving hotshot?

Short #2: “Märchendising” by Johanna Ickert
Synopsis: Deep in the forest of the Uckermark, Miss Hollendorf fights for the survival of her „fairytale-world“. Troubled by unemployment support and a decreasing number of visitors, she decides to call on Karsten Noack, a success coach. But despite her participation in a workshop for “substantial success” and additional private coaching the problems seem unsolvable.

This Week’s Guest Short: “My Happy End” by Milen Vitanov
Synopsis: All dogs chase their tails. A dog once succeeds in catching his own tail. That changes his life as he finds his best friend in it.

Our Special Guest for this week is Luci Westphal. Born in Germany, Luci Westphal attended film school in Florida and then spent 11 years in New Yor City. Through her own production company, Good Hard Working People (official website and blog), she produced and directed various documentaries, short films, music videos and online shows. She is a Jerome Foundation Grant recipient for her documentary film “All’s Well And Fair“. Since she moved to Berlin in May 2010, she has created a one-minute video documentary every week for her web series “In A Berlin Minute“. Thursday night, she will present us several of those very short, instant documentaries.

Hope to see you all there!
