2022 | fic | 16′ | DE | ZHDK

For years now, giant talking newts have been used both for their labour and as laboratory animals. The Newt Congress takes place at a conference building surrounded by nature where participants have come together to optimize the exploitation of the animals. The short film is a free adaptation of Karel Čapek’s „War with the Newts“. 

Der Molchkongress will have its world premiere at the 75th Locarno Film Festival
