The opening trailer for the international short film competition kurzundschön (short and nice) in Cologne plays with the perception of time and the flow of movement. In this film, Cologne residents are liberated from daily existence for a brief moment and are literally elevated from the ground to float suspended in mid-air. An experience of serenity and inner clarity is transferred to the viewer. The trailer communicates the meaning of one single moment – short and nice, as implied by the competition name – to which the viewer is happy to surrender.
