    Beschreibung "Short films are often reduced to beginners’ first exercises or to quick and superficial
    amusements, and shortness is usually seen as a handicap and not an opportunity. “The Art of
    Reduction” looks at short films from the opposite angle and asks what they are capable of not
    despite of but because of the limitation in time. A close analysis of four examples shows a
    number of narrative patterns and effects working especially well in the short format. Among
    them are the establishment of paradox situations, a fragmentary slice-of-life-structure, the
    sudden shift from literal to allegorical meaning, the play with narrative conventions, a laconic
    or allusive style and the open or ambiguous ending." (Information des Anbieters)
