Transformation: Beziehungen

Transformation: Beziehungen

Whether to make visible new perspectives on dealing with historical artifacts and monuments (MOVING MONUMENTS), to break up relationships of trust (THE SAUSAGE RUN), to create new ones (BETI), or even to end them altogether (CLOSING TIME), it always becomes apparent that relationships are fragile and always subject to transformation. Group processes can influence relationships (KIDS). But even supposedly beautiful encounters can take an unpleasant turn (LET’S DO THIS AGAIN SOMETIME) and events in relationships can be courageously questioned (MY UNCLE TUDOR).

Director: Thomas Stellmach

An animated short film which, with the help of multiple Zoetropes, tells the tragic story of a little lamb, loosely based on the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. However, the roles of the humans and animals are exchanged: the human characters in the film are depicted as anthropomorphous animals. The animal in the story, the big bad wolf, is a human being here. Little Red Riding Hood’s family consists of the mother sheep, the lamb (Little Red Riding Hood) and a grandfather sheep. The forester and his wife are dogs with a soft spot for sausages. The wolf, a butcher, is a man with a serious problem – he has run out of meat.
