The films:

The Flood Is Coming
Gabriel Böhmer, UK 2018, 9 min., animation
A forest hermit tries to prepare for a flood, but he becomes distracted by his noisy neighbour – who happens to be the hermit’s left eye. A film exploring the growing anxiety about the state of nature, and our place in it.

Yulia & Juliet
Zara Dwinger, Netherlands 2018, 12 min.
In the desperate surroundings of a juvenile hall, two girls find salvation in their love for each other. There is not really room for their relationship in the detention centre, but when one of them is released, the two are completely severed. Can they later resume their liaison outside the walls of the institution or is it better if they reunite within the confines of the familiar but padlocked surroundings?

Operation Jane Walk
Robin Klengel & Leonhard Müllner, Austria 2018, 16 min.
OPERATION JANE WALK is based on the dystopian multiplayer shooter game TOM CLANCY’S: THE DIVISION. In this short film, the game’s digital war zone is appropriated with the help of an artistic operation. Within the rules of the game’s software, the militaristic environment is being re-used for a pacifistic city tour. The urban flâneurs avoid the combats whenever possible and become peaceful tourists of a digital world, which is a detailed replica of Midtown Manhattan. While walking through the post-apocalyptic city, issues such as architecture history, urbanism and the game developer’s interventions into the urban fabric are being discussed.

Excuse Me, I’m Looking For The Ping-Pong Room And My Girlfriend
Bernhard Wenger, Austria, Sweden, Germany 2018, 23 min.
A film about a couple on a wellness trip, in which one partner disappears and the other isn’t sure whether he's looking for her or himself. Within the bizarre world of an alpine wellness resort, Aron begins a new chapter in his life.

Leyenda Dorada (The Golden Legend)
Chema García Ibarra & Ion de Sosa, Spain 2019, 11 min.
The swimming pool has played an important role throughout film history – most often as a romping ground for the sophisticated and hedonistic Dolce Vita. In LEYENDA DORADA a rather unglamorous swimming pool of diminished charm forms the focal point of the story. A lazy summer’s day in the Spanish village of Montánchez, and people of all ages enjoy themselves at the outdoor pool. It is an almost utopian depiction of community, under the lofty, watchful gaze of Our Lady of Consolation. While conflicts, aggression, rivalries and animosities have a siesta, the villagers take a well-deserved break.

After the final film (Operation Jane Walk) there will be a Skype-interview with director Robin Klengel.

diverse, 2019, 72 min. , without subtitles.
