“Short, Yet Films: Me and Myself”

There is nothing more terrifying than a confrontation with one’s self. Maybe the only thing more terrifying is that sooner or later the rest of the world will have to be introduced to our own desires, inner demons and silent thoughts. Five protagonists of this programme ask: “Who am I?” and by seeking answers they have to try on different personalities.
