OF ANIMALS AND MEN
16., 22., 23. and 24.11. 2016
Sometimes we eat them, sometimes they eat us, and other times we like them better than we like people. Creatures that are with us all the time - either as friends or as parts of three-course meals - they are always around. And that's exactly what the Of Animals and Men night will be about. Come and check out how filmmakers from all over the world see animals in our lives!
