Prague

Wednesday 4. 12. 2019 | 20 : 30 | BIO OKO, Františka Křížka 460/15, Prague (map)

Christmas and the end of the year can be a trying time. The crowds are trying to trample you in shopping malls, stuffed Santa Clauses smile maniacally overhead, your liver stiffening from the flood of Christmas parties and the glucometer bursting from piles of candy. So, iShorts decided to end 2019 with one big Apocalypse. A series of films about future worlds, the days of solar eclipse or personal endings and their private consequences. The Big Bang will come in December and experience it with us.
