Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 1

On the way through a deserted Venice, strained as a tourist setting—past slide guitar players, gondoliers, and hit-song legends—different ways of living collide, opening new horizons for a young woman. Superbly enigmatic and playful, in its entirely unique, thoroughly composed visual aesthetics, the musical film tells of departure from childhood, self-determination, and a fresh start.
