Clara with a Mustache

Kosovo2021animated10'International Short Film Competition

People exiled from their homes, deprived of money and valuables, sent to prisons – that is how they are treated during a war. A witness to these dramatic events is a German mark banknote with a portrait of Clara Schumann. Passed from hand to hand, it is part of the war, emigration or illegal business. This depressing plasticine animation shows a grim wartime reality. The leitmotif of the wandering banknote allows the story to come full circle and leads to a slightly hopeful ending.
