Summary

The river is the cradle of life, as water is the not only the essence of life itself, but also its
progenitor. Hence, the search for life on other planets is synonymous with the search for water.
This is why the river can serve as a microcosm of the ecology of the entire region. In “The River – Odyssey of Life”, we explore the rivers of Korea to learn about the creatures that reside there, and to ponder the cycle of life and death which occurs in perfect synchronization with the changing of the seasons.

Summary

The Big Showdown is a 3D short film that reveals different stages of awareness…

Further to a seemingly insignificant event, he will give way to paranoia and madness
before he realizes that his everyday life is no longer satisfying and that a new start has
become vital. What triggers off this radical change is a duel…
A duel between the man and a pigeon taking shelter out of his windowsill…
Being a very maniac person, the intrusion of pigeons in his everyday routine will lead the
way to Norbert’s brief but intense paranoid insanity crisis. When fighting to protect his
“territory”, which is to say his soothing daily life, against the invading bird, he is actually
fighting against himself. Norbert has to force himself to accept confronting the outside
world once again, thereby accepting the idea of a new life and opening up to hope.
