26th edition of EJECT, the Long Night of Weird Shorts at the Volksbühne! 21 bizarre short films enter the ring to be celebrated and reviled in an interactive cinematic extravagaza where the audience is the jury. The wayward masterpieces compete in blocks, favourites are filtered out and in the end there is ONE way-out winner. Folke Renken & Ludmila Pogodina are the clashing hosts of the madness and at the end of the night the exhausted, euphoric audience can dance till they drop at the Weird Eject Party in the Unterfilm Clubkino!

A creepy earworm is haunting Edith, in the form of a rabbit-eared man wearing a pink shirt. Whether she's in the shower or at her desk, at the bus stop, in the cinema or in bed with a lover – he just won't leave her alone. [CW: Suicide]
