Life Is Beautiful
A brief scene from a Super-8 home video, an archetypal snapshot: two little girls riding on coin-operated rocking horses. As the horses stop, an abrupt end indeed, the children’s world collapses. All that remains is a tearful look into the camera – reproachful, sad.
Sasha Pirker has made Life is Beautiful available to the IFFF Dortmund + Köln as the trailer for 2015.
