Synopsis

Every single joke, quip or pun holds a grain of someone’s truth. Although we live at a time where no truths – save death and taxes – are considered absolute, they run the risk of rubbing someone the wrong way. Public discussions about political correctness have become commonplace, and cynics call it the end of humour.

We believe reports about the end of humour are greatly exaggerated. Our world and the human experience are simply too strange. It doesn’t matter if you’re a misanthropic train operator, a chain-smoking mermaid or an astronaut facing an Icelandic farmer.

The authors of these films sense this existential absurdity sharply and are not afraid to laugh at it. Even if the joke is as dark as the night.
