Internationaler Wettbewerb 6

Six films about different forces of attraction, which it is impossible to escape: Be it the bulging purse, which a careless swimmer leaves on the shore (SUMMER MEMORIES) or a THING, like the patio roof of the neighbors, in which a woman has fallen hopelessly in love. Attractions away from heteronormativity also exist among animals (IN NATURE). An Indonesian boy is attracted to a maternal rubber doll that must be defended (THE SEA…). FROZEN JUMPER draws us hypnotizingly under its spell and in a dodgy park is best indulged in desire at night (FIREFLIES).
