SUSANNE STEINMASSL & JULIA STIEBERT, THE SHOW SHOW
(DEU/UKR 2016, HD, 26’, GERMAN)
A profound and absurd one-man-show by a nerve-racking moderator, repeatedly interrupted by images of the Ukraine, a country in civil war, which seems strangely calm and peaceful in the film. A self-deconstructing filmic meditation about meaninglessness and overload in a world defined by social media.
