Best Graduation Film 2023
by Matthias Sahli, Immanuel Esser
For years now, giant talking newts have been used both for their labour and as laboratory animals. The Newt Congress takes place at a conference building surrounded by nature where participants have come together to optimize the exploitation of the animals. The short film is a free adaptation of Karel Čapek’s “War with the Newts”.
