• Netherlands

A comic observation exercise that won the award for best short documentary at the festival in Tampere in Finland,
this film follows the auctioning of various industrial machines, trucks, pneumatic hammers, cranes, diggers,
and tractors, their grabs, toothed wheels and belts, which immediately become a source of excited tension, whispering, and gesturing: the buyers must decide quickly, because someone else may also come along and make a higher bid.

Film will be available after festival screening from 25.10. 16:00

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
