Shorts #2: Documentary Strand
A selection of insightful documentary filmmaking exploring everything from the state of the world in 2020 to miniature golf.
Dir. Julius Dommer | 15 mins | Germany
ASCONA shows a place that seems to have fallen out of time, that has not changed since the 1950s but still exists. A miniature golf course becomes a social analysis analogy.

Reflecting the conversatism of the 1950s ASCONA features a cross-section of society.
