Welcome to Absurdistan, a small village in the high desert mountains, just on the outskirts of reality, where magical visions and bizarre events fuse together. The village is facing a water shortage, but the men are too lazy to fix a rickety pipeline and the women are getting fed up with their good-for-nothing husbands.

A young dreamer whose blind father runs the bathhouse has convinced his father that the bathhouse is filled with customers. His brother is a ruthless industrialist who wants to destroy the building and erect a futuristic city in its place.

Aside from a few random words, the film is without dialogue, a silent film with musical accompaniment

Millions of people pass through the Frankfurt Airport on their way from one city to another; for Alexej and Nisha, however, the airport is a city in itself - their own. With the help of airport technician Dak, Alexej breaks out of the holding area for refugees. Dak puts up the Russian, who yearns to become a pilot, in an underground labyrinth of pipes and vents. The young Indian woman Nisha pictures herself as a flight attendant, but the only time she ever boards a plane is to clean it. The two meet one night inside an empty jet as they are both acting out their dreams. Enraptured, the passionate Alexej offers her his love and wins her heart. When Alexej finds out that Nisha's dream is fueled by the desire to bring her little son to Germany, he hands Dak his own savings, along with Nisha's, to have the boy smuggled out of India. Their plan runs smoothly until the plane lands in Frankfurt and the boy, mistaken for another child, is put in detention. Alexej promises Nisha to rescue her son - and to do so, he makes his own dream of flying come true

Quatsch( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The colorful village of Bollersdorf lies directly between northern and southern Germany, earning it the nickname "the belly button of the world," and by all accounts is considered 100% average. Due to the town's overwhelming normalness, a consumer studies company named GFK has set up its headquarters in the village square, from which it tests out its increasingly bizarre new products such as Green Corn Flakes and Blutella on the easily influenced public. But to the group of resourceful, rambunctious young children known as the Coati Gang, average is a dirty word, and they bemoan the fact that their grandparents have all been unceremoniously dumped into nursing homes as a result of their youthful, overactive imaginations and past careers as stunt pilots, bold mountaineers, and rocket car inventors. When the Coati Gang happens upon a book of world records, they get inspired and decide to break the village of its monotony through whatever means necessary."--SIFF website
