Mobile Kino presents a special Berlin screening of the 2020 Oscar-Nominated Short Films. Every year Mobile Kino puts together a special event featuring all five of the nominated short films in selection for the upcoming Academy Awards. This year we have two different events for both the Live Action and Animation categories. Join us for one or both screenings at the beautiful and historic BABYLON cinema.
Five films are nominated for the Oscar® Shorts 2020. They come from the USA, Canada, Belgium and France and show intensive interpersonal relationships. A family is faced with a generation conflict due to new neighbors, girls are oppressed in an orphanage in Guatemala, juveniles organize a secret transport in a Tunisian village, a shepherd returns home with a new woman and a woman calls in the car for help by phone.
