GERMAN
COMPETITION

Collective Loneliness:

In the first program of the German competition, we are confronted with the phenomenon of collective loneliness, which accompanies individuals in various life situations and is situated within a larger societal context. To what extent does our freedom of choice extend to living as we wish, or are we ultimately trapped within our social bubbles?

"Flowers are like people. Take care of them and they will blossom." To Flowerboy his customers' feelings are an open book. For every emotion he got the proper flower in store. Yet, as he effortlessly fills other peoples' vases his own remains empty. Only when a customer gifts a flower to him, Flowerboy must concede what he denied so far: his inability to feel. He must become his own vase's flower. A realization that takes him on a journey... And a tender feeling is what remains in the end.

Welcome to St. Mickeyland! In painting-like tableaus, a reservation inhabited by cartoon and media icons is displayed. The assembled characters are in search of meaning in life, reflecting on their creation in the honeypot of capital. While Snow White learns stand-up paddling, Winnie the Pooh gives birth to a descendant, adding a dash of humanity to the fictional shell.
