HELLO EVERYBODY / Juha van Ingen / Finland / 2017 / 08:14
Greetings from near and far, from us to you. We welcome everybody over distances and through time. You are welcome! Even though greeting is very culture and situation specific, it is used in all known human cul- tures. Greetings that form the narrative of Hello Every- body take our familiar ritual one step further yet.
CITY DWELLERS / STADT LAND SCHAF / Elke Brugger / Germany / 2013 / 11:00
In German with English subtitles
Mr. Schneider is very busy and always on the go. In his job, he has to know everything and has to lead hun- dreds of staff. Nothing special for a man in a large city like Cologne but in his case, things are slightly differ- ent: it may rain at his workplace, his team has a furry coat and his efforts take him nowhere near being rich. City Dwellers tells the story of a shepherd and his furry team in the city and gives us insights into a profession, of which many people don’t even know it existed.

Imagine you wake up one day, all your friends have dis- appeared. The friends that should be there are gone. So you look. You look everywhere. Every hiding place, each inch of the city, all the marshes, all the rivers. You look, but cannot find them.
