When I was a kid...
Aniko Atilla & Ricarda Vogel
The animation "When I was a kid..." illustrates the differing views on the USA that children had who grew up in East and West Germany. While East Germans only knew the USA from television or communist propaganda, West Germans experienced the USA as a natural part of their own identity.
Das Orakel | the Oracle
Jan Gurbandt & Maximilian Maier
What is the best way to discuss stereotypes without falling back on personal biases or being offensive? "Das Orakel" ("the Oracle") is both our attempt to answer that question and its own making-of movie in itself. We first witness our unsuccessful attempts to approach the topic with interviews, before an unconventional yet very familiar tool gives us some truly interesting insights.
Emmerich Buchmueller & Christopher Wilutzki
This animation about stereotypes deals with the german imaginary of U.S. americans. For the research-phase we talked to both german and americans, to find out about similarities. The result shows on one hand the good things about America, but also mentions some negative aspects.
