wieso es gibt 3633 emojis

Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 1

A film told entirely via emojis. Groundbreaking or not really? The Viennese artist Renfah is convinced of an idea and texts the “script” to his friend Christoph Schwarz. Emoji after emoji the meaning of the symbols becomes increasingly diffuse. Renfah promptly misunderstands Schwarz’s exit sign. But then comes a blessing in disguise: a child and a dog take over the project development.
