Sex and death
Science and technology are constantly changing our lives, but two aspects of human existence remain constant… sex and death, you can’t live without them.
Please Note: This program is not recommended for those under the age of 16. Some scenes may be shocking to some viewers.
Sebastian Harrer – Germany – 8:25
In the not too distant future Cinderella3.0 and NewBond meet in a chat room. They seem to describe themselves as boundless exaggerations of themselves. But the technical possibilities to design a one-night stands are endless bizarre – a paradise for fantasies and sexual preferences. The only stress factor: time. After the bell, the Prince will return to the Hunchback … Consequently, the main characters don’t speak a single word. The fantastic oversupply makes this unnecessary, but blunts. In principle, this film is about the loneliness and the loss of (sexual) identity. The only enemies in the battle of the sexes of the 21st century are time and reality.
