Father was nominated for Best Experimental Short of the Year at the 2020 Annual Awards.
Der Elefant läuft dieses Jahr im Rahmen der Midnight Movi(e)s in Tampere!
"Midnight Mov(i)es three screenings includes spiked films, which fits to watch in the dark of the night. The films in the program deal with the wild and failed misadventures of the human species. Desire, lust, and madness compete with each other."
