This program brings together some of the most interesting works from the 2019 International Competition of the Oberhausen Film Festival. In the course of six decades, the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has developed into one of the most highly acclaimed cultural events worldwide – a place where renowned figures like Agnès Varda, Martin Scorsese, Alexander Kluge and Werner Herzog first showed their work.
