Last  round of Competition Shorts  is taking place this week! The program is as follows:

Short #1: “Romy, ich bin krank “, by Andreas Grützner

Synopsis: Juergen Vollmer met The Beatles 1960 in Hamburg music club Kaiserkeller. They hung around together, Vollmer started photographing them and when they met again in Paris, The Beatles insisted to get his haircut. Narrow-minded Hamburg in the 50th and 60th made him escape to Paris. He took pictures of beatniks while having sex, moved on to New York and L.A., where he started his career as set photographer on Hollywood filmsets (J.V.: ‘It was awful most of the time’) and took picture of several stars. A montage of animated sequences, interviews and original artist photos.
