Little Red Riding Hood, Dachshund and the Wolf
Grimms’ famous fairytale in a new guise: the narrator is a house with long arms, the grandmother scoffs chocolates and there are several new characters: Dachshund, for example, Little Red Riding Hood’s brother, and Banger,
the dog. The protagonists speak in sign language, but the focus of the film is not the gestures. Rather, they develop a poetical energy that connects both deaf and hearing people.
