The Dutch are known for their tulips and directness, but what's lesser known is the typical dark sense of humor that they share. Animation from the Netherlands is full of social commentary, satire, slapstick — sometimes just for the fun of it, but more often it's a way to make difficult topics discussable. The animated shorts in this program cleverly discuss the sadness of infertility, uneventful retirement homes, peer pressure, and more. All dark and sharp at first, but poignant and often heartwarming in the end. A fine selection of the best dark humor that KLIK has to offer.
The screening is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine.
Running time 60 min.

When she is one blank short of winning the game and the tiny ball suddenly disappears, she starts an absurd search for it in which she is willing to go to extreme lengths in order to get the outcome of that night's bingo game.
