Childhood, adolescence, maturity, old age and death. We can hardly avoid these phases of life. But what if they start to mingle, intertwine or collide? These situations are of the greatest interest to filmmakers, who shot the shorts we have compiled in the program Meaning of life. Always with different perspective, always with hyperbole and distance. Anyway, we cant pull through life alive, can we?
