A Fat Person Goes to the Doctor

Innovative Cinema Short, AT 2024, DCP, 11 min, eOF
Program: Innovatives Kino Programm 4

Veronika Merklein takes a seat in a waiting room and tells “jokes” that all begin the same way, “A fat person goes to the doctor.” Canned laughter pours out over painful, transgressive statements. A clever, poignant performance that generates an oppressive feeling.
