Soft Powers (Julia Kaiser, 2019)

Soft Powers

Folks who don’t know what they want manage to have a semi-satisfying afternoon. Julia Kaiser writes, directs, produces, animates, films and acts as her alter ego Han Profond, who is interested in semiotics and lies about her age. To escape the critical gaze of her mother the felt frog, Han has moved out into the party shed where she drinks beers and welcomes her masked history teacher Schenkel, as well as some ghosts from the past and future.
