Karl Anton – Unplugged

Karl Anton wants to shine – as an immortal megastar in rock’n’roll heaven. He has all a popstar needs: good looks. And he knows how to move, how to hold the guitar and how to deal with the girls. He knows what it’s all about. It’s everybody else who is the problem. When the pop legend meets the real world, things really get hair-raising. How will Karl Anton cope with the ignorance of his audience and the obstacles of everyday life? Answers are given in these groovy and electrifying thirty-second performances.

Yankale

This film considers the case of Jakob L (Yankale), a lowly civil servant who fails to turn up to work one day. We get to know more about him, his life, his childhood, and above all his relationship with his oppressive mother. His childhood is portrayed as a peaceful island, where time and formalities do not exist. The contrast between the square shapes of the office world and the rounded, organic forms of the sea and the island emphasize the conflict between our desires and our duties. This film won eight prizes at international film festivals.

Once upon a time there was a war between earth and the planet Zog. The two vast space fleets took off to do battle but, at the point of contact in deep space, the earth crews were smelling their girlfriend’s underpants while the Zog’s were distracted watching porn and so they passed one another. 30 years later the Zog have invaded earth unnoticed. One man, Dwight Hokum, is at an all-night wine tasting when he sees the Zog removing their heads. He sets out to warn the world and kill those he sees who are Zogs however the world brands him a killer and doesn’t believe him. When Dwight finds that even his President is a Zog he has no option but to strike out on his own to save the world.

Trim Time

The film tells the story of a tree that during the course of the year receives a rather radical pruning of its foliage. In the course of this simple story we go through the four seasons of the year; The transfer from season to season is accentuated by the music, as well as by the change of colors from silent grays of the winter to vivid green in the summer. The comic effect in the film is achieved by the contrast between the lazy and sleepy character of the tree and the active and jumpy character of the barber.

Rubicon

This film tries to solve the classic brain-teaser “How can you get a wolf, a sheep and a cabbage across a river one at a time, without them eating each other.” The rational solution seems fine in theory, but does not work when applied to conflicts in real life. This film was the German entry at the 1998 Cannes film festival, and has garnered a total of thirteen prizes.
