"Berlinale Shorts has always been interested in fictional narratives beyond the well-trodden paths. In keeping with the credo of the “Ulmer Dramaturgy” miniatures of the 1960s, it’s all about creating tension in cinema without resorting to the run-of-the-mill narrative form, claiming the active role in society every artist deserves to call their own."
