To Cut A Long Story Short (© Kevin Beckmann)

The film To Cut A Long Story Short by MK students Minh Anh Nguyen (director), Eric Wehner (music) and Kevin Beckmann (production) was nominated for "Best Film Score" at the Karlsruhe Film Festival Independent Days.

The film was started by Minh Anh Nguyen and Kevin Beckmann in their first semester of studies at the HfG and had its world premiere at the Sehsüchte-festival in Babelsberg last year.

The project was funded by the Zeitbild-Lab of the HfG in the first call and received support from the AStA and the Cultural Office of the City of Karlsruhe, among others. More than 40 students from all departments of the HfG were involved. The project was realized as a free project and supervised by Ludger Pfanz and former professor Răzvan Rădulescu as well as former academic assistant Dr. Christine Reeh-Peters in media art.

The film will be shown at Schauburg Karlsruhe on April 20, 2023 at 4:45pm.

To Cut A Long Story Short is a parable on the inevitability and hopelessness of sentimental love. The opera singer presents the success of her speed diet and gives helpful tips for follow-up problems.

The reserved brunette meets the charismatic macho who tries to lure her out of the net of her insecurity. Their joint odyssey leads them to a deserted island, to a swimming pool at night and into a Dionysian bathroom. Too bad she's a fish who's afraid of the sea. The redheads meet on the dance floor and speak as if from the same mouth. Magic carries them away, but why, of all things, does the schizophrenic have to show up in the jungle? And then there is the night porter, who is secretly dancing in the hotel's staff toilet. He obviously has a crush on the pretty waitress from the diner around the corner, but while he's ogling her over the covers of his Camus book, the stranger suddenly appears and everyone takes a different turn ...
