Out Fishing | Angelausflug
How nice it would be not to feel lonely. All the others – the squirrels, the snails, the dragonflies, and the earthworms have partners. The banana birds make up a threesome, and even the frog finds a partner in Betty's rubber boots. But Betty has a fishing rod, and an idea. Director, producer and composer Uzi Geffenblad tells a tale of how tedium can be transformed into joy. He is presenting a short film at Generation for the third time.
