Trailer of "Kwaku Ananse", official selection in Berlinale Shorts 2013 Kwaku Ananse is a traditional West African fable of a spiderman, who spends years collecting all the wisdom of the world in a wooden pot. As he tries to hide the pot in a tree he can’t find a way to place it high up in its branches. When his little son, Ntikuma shows him the way, Kwaku Ananse becomes so angered that throws the pot down onto the ground. It bursts open and the wisdom seeps away. Everyone rushes over, hoping to salvage what they can. Nyan Koronhwea returns to her father Kwaku Ananse's native Ghana for his funeral. They had long lost contact with each other. She has mixed feelings about her father’s double life with one family in Ghana and another in the United States. Overwhelmed by the funeral, she retreats to the spirit world in search for Kwaku Ananse. She carries her ambivalence with her into the forest, where she learns the ultimate truth about all human relationships.

Trailer of "Una Ciudad En Una Ciudad", official selection in Berlinale Shorts 2013 A heterotopy is a space, symptomatically reflecting upon a social netting. When over 20 years ago the construction was interrupted for a skyscraper in Caracas, Venezuela, no one could have guessed that this building would once become the tallest squat on earth. An empiric, fractal view into the everyday life, the structure and the thoughts of the inhabitants stay in dialogue with the architecture of the tower, which once had been conceived as a financial centre and now gives shelter to a parallel society.
