Films from Kassel in Cannes

On 17 May 2009, the most promising films were presented by German young filmmakers in Cannes. Even films by students of animation class Kassel were represented.

Both the sisters Ines Christine Geisser and Kirsten Carina Geisser and Tobias Bilgeri were invited to participate in the “Next Generation 2009” contest, the most important film festival. The animation film “Rosarot” by Ines Christine und Kirsten Carina Geisser tells humorously about the irritations and needs of lovers. Ines Christine Geisser has been studying at the Kunsthochschule Kassel since 2006 and attends the illustration and the cartoon film class. Her sister Kirsten Carina Geisser visits the Kunsthochschule Kassel as a guest student.

In the animation “You are my hero”, which is from Tobias Bilgeri, the story of a knight is told, which is constantly going into battle. Even if his sword, after succesfully beating battles, smells suspiciously of tomato juice, the wife of the knight keeps faithful to her hero. Only when the knight goes without the sword, does she decide to get to the bottom of the matter.

On Sunday, May 17, 2009, the films were shown at STAR Cinema in Cannes and are shown following festivals in Madrid, Paris, London, Moscow and New York.
