What happens in your brain if you see a german word like...?
Germany | 2015 | short experimental film | 5 mins | color | English and German | Subtitles available in English, German, French, Spanish
The German language is very flexible: one can simply string words together in order to create new ones. Director Zora Rux blends animation and live-action in order to make a humorous account of what happens inside the brain of a man reading an extremly complex word. Gently mocking intellectual language, the film investigates how different language structures affect the way we think.
