Vdol’ i poperyok

Between the Lines | Zwischen den Streifen
Swinging jazz music, swaying hips and fluttering eyelashes. A lonely zebra longs to find a partner – and wherever it turns, it sees other animals who have already found partners. It’s enough to drive a zebra crazy. In a mesmerizing dance of shifting black and white lines, flickering circles, blinking eyes and swaying bodies this charming film tells a love story set to the rhythm of the music.
