Synopsis:
A colourful and amusing report on how common same-sex relationships are in the animal world. Some animals can even change their gender at will and as often as they like - how cool is that?!

Three Questions for the Director

1. Short Film has a unique way of telling stories and exploring themes. What is it that fascinates you about the short format?

Marcel Barelli: What I like about making a short film is that you can talk about a lot of different and important subjects in a very short time. and above all we can do it with humor too.

2. The program your film is selected for is called “ Die lange Nacht des abwegigen Films”: What connection do you see between your film and that title?

Marcel Barelli: What is absurd about the theme of my thread is the subject. little is known about animal homosexuality. see not at all. I decided to make a short film of it for all audiences but with a little crazy colors and music to better remember it and also laugh.

3. What film has inspried you most to make films yourself and what part of it do you see in your own work?

Marcel Barelli: It is difficult to know his true inspirations, unless they are voluntary. It's a bit strange but I think the humor and the colors of The Simpsons have always made me laugh and I think I find them a bit in my "themed films".
