Watch: Alexander Gellner’s “Maniman”

A melancholy fairy tale for a cool late winter afternoon.

“Two brothers know an old man since ever. He, of course, has a man inside him and in this man another man. They live in friendly symbiosis. Then they die one after another. The kids are the first to notice. This short film explores the theme of aging and death from a child-like point of view, giving it the most distant and natural touch possible.” – bitteschö
