For the 3rd edition of this award- winning collaboration, emerging filmmakers and authors from Egypt and Germany teamed up. Reflecting upon the concept of “Identity” they take us on an emotional trip: Meet chimera in the desert, fly up in the sky and dive down to the deep sea, get crazy in an apartment in Alexandria, become entangled in a fierce dialogue and listen to the memories of an old man.
A fascinating selection of contemporary poetry and avant-garde experimental and animation aesthetics. The six films invite the viewer to explore these new artistic positions and the artists behind them. The short films were developed within the framework of a joint OSTPOL and Fig Leaf Studios program under the mentorship of Cathy de Haan, Islam Kamal, Aline Helmcke and Mark Lotfy.
