Big Heinrich

Director: Kim Collmer, Lars Kreyssig | Animation | Germany | Australian Premiere | 2019 | 4:00 mins 

Once upon a long, long, not all that long time ago, big Heinrich lived in a small German village. A gloomy fellow. Everybody was afraid of the enormous man. Everyone, that is, but little Heinke. But is that really a good thing? 


Directed by Kim Collmer and Lars Kreyssig, this dark fairy tale asks us to considers what might happen when adults ignore responsibility and leave children to fend for themselves.

Its ethos is born from a need for greater cultural innovation from hybrid online and physical events to present quirky, risky, vibrant, thought-provoking, and enriched projects within the seven nodes of celebration.
