The Kiosk

An animated film by Anete Melece | 6 Min. 55 Sec.

For years now, the kiosk has been Olga’s little home simply because her sweet tooth and monotonous life has made her bigger than the exit. To distract herself, she reads travel magazines and dreams of being far away. An absurd incident starts the beginning of her journey.

Die Kioskfrau Olga ist stets gut gelaunt. Sie kennt die Wünsche und Probleme der Leute, die täglich bei ihr vorbeischauen und bedient sie liebevoll. Wenn sie allein ist jedoch – und das ist sie oft – wünscht sie
sich weit weg; raus aus diesem monotonen Leben, in dem sie wortwörtlich feststeckt. Durch absurde Vorfälle wird sie schliesslich aus ihrer Stadt fortgespült und gelangt an den Ort ihrer Träume...

In co-production with: Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen
