Berlinale: Programme

Berlinale Shorts


“Whoever you are. Where you are. And what ever you are. You are in the middle. That's the game.” Everything is a video game. The game is a simulation of the world, seen from the perspective of everyone and everything: Atoms, plants, animals, planets and galaxies. The English philosopher Alan Watts (1915-1973) accompanies this journey as narrator. It’s a simulation of reality where you can see the world from everything's point of view – it’s kind of a philosophy project in the form of a game. There is no narrative or story - just the world as it is. (David OReilly) In 2008, OReilly received a Special Mention for RGB XYZ and a Golden Bear for Please Say Something in 2009 at the Berlinale Shorts.
