Sexy Shorts

The most beautiful triviality in the world can take many forms and provide many a surprise. In this program, bodies transform (GEMINI, EYES AND HORNS), merge with nature (BREATHING PSOAS) or take a trip to Wonderland (KLIMAX). In addition, the films address sexuality on the net and related codes (LONG_LUKE, COMMUNITY GUIDELINES, ZUMINDEST BIN ICH DRAUSSEN GEWESEN) and show homosexual themes in both humans (VIRGIN MY ASS) and animals (IN NATURE).
