Gefühlt (Sensed) 

2011. doc.

 

"It’s so wonderful to swim in the sea and feel the waves changing the bottom!"

It’s so nice to skate, touch the cold ice, feel your loved ones with more than the eye!
The world unseen but sensed. A short film journey in the world of touch, through which we are guided by blind Karina and her seeing- eye dog Portes.

 Cafè D'Amour 

Cafè D'Amour, Benedikt Toniolo

2016

 

Pixilated slapstick comedy, based on a dream of the director Benedikt Toniolo. It is the story of Lewis the Tramp and Coco the Lady, who fell in love by chance and choice - the choice of the most self-willed and tricky Café d'Amour.
