OVERBOARD! (PŘES PALUBU!)
Czech Republic, Slovakia, 2019 / 12 min / without words / animation
Two friends are trying to sneak onto a cruise ship reserved for couples.
At first glance, Chameleon and Kiwi are a strange pair: While the former calls attention to himself with his changing colours, the discreet and frightened Kiwi avoids attention at all cost. But when a storm robs them of the roof over their heads, differences matter no longer. They decide to take shelter on the cruise ship about to set out from shore, but this is no simple task! The boat is reserved for selected couples and Chameleon, with his hanging tongue, and cross-eyed Kiwi certainly aren’t one of them. It’s when they get on board that their problems start.
The school screenings on 04/03 at 10:00 AM, on 05/03 at 10:30 AM, on 08/03 at 10:30 AM, on 09/03 at 10:30 AM and on 12/03 à 10h30 AM unfortunately had to be cancelled.
