Friends and Remedies

Dir. Various / 80 min

Cert (15)*

The second instalment of international animated shorts touches on the theme of companionship, and includes Becky and Joe’s sequel to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, in which a clock teaches the ramshackle gang about the notion of time. Late Night Work Club member, Alex Grigg’s Phantom Limb sees a couple coming to terms with their lives together after a serious bike accident, and Jochen Kuhn’s third film in his Sunday outings trilogy sees German Chancellor Angela Merkel go on a blind date with an unsuspecting man. There’s also new work from Mikey Please (The Eagleman Stag) and Nicolai Troshinsky.
