Germany 2022 – Director: Jonathan Brunner – Original language: English, Polish – Subtitles: English

A barracks in Bavaria provisionally housing Ukrainian children. The no-man’s-land between EU and Belarus and a desperate attempt to maintain communication. The silence in Ahr valley after catastrophic flooding. Three places, three areas of stasis and eerie silence – three short films for our time.

We show this film together with WAKING UP IN SILENCE and STILLE WASSER.
