What goes as love in the age of the virtual, when everything turns into numbers? Images, feelings and sensations are blurring away. Stories of contemporary witches, rebellious ballerinas, superheroes, sea inhabitants and bubble gum appear. These 12 short films have been carefully selected by teenagers for a teenager audience, but not only. Ioana Bogdana and Eva Todica from Super - Festival invite you to an exploration of movement with meaning.
