WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR BRAIN IF YOU SEE A GERMAN WORD LIKE...

The German language is very flexible: one can simply string words together in order to create new ones. Director Zora Rux blends animation and live­action in order to make a humorous account of what happens inside the brain of a man reading an extremly complex word. The film investigates how different language structures affect the way we think, gently mocking intellectual language.



  • Duration: 5 Min.
