Shortcutz Berlin #112 Session – May 6th


The first round of competition shorts of the month of May is here!

May is going to be the last month of screenings before Shortcutz Berlin goes on a break for the Summer. We will come back in the Fall.

The shorts in competition this week are the following:

Short #1: “24/7“, by Jeanette Wagner

Synopsis: Two people living in a state of bored love, a married couple in short, invite an unknown couple to their house. First it’s time for coffee, then let’s see. In the end the boredom is gone – but at times it’s better not knowing everything about your partner.

Short #2: “Mein Engel“, by Miriam Bliese

Synopsis: Jelena and her mother Vera, left Russia 20 years ago to come to Germany. Since this time, they’ve been living together in a tiny two bedroom appartment. Vera is almost 70 now and unable to accept reality in Germany. In her mind, she still lives in Russia, where she was a famous dancer. She gave up everything to allow her daughter to make her career in the west. But Jelena only managed to get a job as a dance teacher for chubby little girls…
Every single moment, Vera makes her daughter feel that she is not good enough. And Jelena takes revenge by all means available to her. A film about a power struggle between a mother and her daughter.

The Special Guest is Marion Pfaus – Rigoletti. Marion is writer and filmmaker from Berlin and also part of the jury of Shortcutz Berlin.Rigoletti will show some of her humboldt21-movies – more info in this article from Exberliner magazine.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
