Internationaler Wettberwerb | International Competition

This programme, which includes some of the most interesting works from the 2018 International Competition, focuses on remembrance and personal or political farewells. While
Murata Tomoyasu‘s puppet animation about the 2011 tsunami brings together present and past in a constant series of new combinations, the photo film “Season of Goodbyes” features a letter to a beloved person that explores connectedness and separation that accompany by life and loss.

Naomi van Niekerk, on the other hand, remembers her mother between red wine and Puccini. Kiri Dalena revives the story of a Philippine rebel who drowned years ago by entering the water herself as an actively committed citizen. In Anssi Kasitonni‘s fairytale-like, picaresque
work, nonsense comes into its own. At the end, the Brazilian Lobo Mauro combines the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff, labour reforms and the legendary 1:7 defeat at the 2014 football World Cup to create a bitter and angry assessment of the current state of the nation.
