BLASTOGENESE X, Directors: Conrad Veit & Charlotte Maria Kätzl, Germany, 2020
PREMIERE, 21:45h, Freiluftkino Hasenheide

Resembling a rediscovered film reel from the early days of cinema, Conrad Veit and Charlotte Maria Kätzl’s short film imagines a utopia where any and all life forms are equal. The experimental documentary defies the socially constructed binary classification of male and female and challenges the viewer to question the boundaries between humans and animals. This one is not to be missed!
