TWIST & TURN
FR/DE/NL 1897–2013. Director: div. 21 Min. Suitable from age 0. Recommended from age 3.
In “Twist & Turn” everything is in motion. Nothing stands still. Marbles sway and roll in all directions, ink and lines dance to the beat of the music and a dog moves with his best friend, his own tail. Together, the young audience looks, listens, moves and dances to five unique and funny films, one of them is even older than 100 years.
