GER 1963, 10 min

A little boy in pre-Christmas season. Roland Klicks first movie!


A boy is given a lottery ticket and wanders through the streets during Christmas time. The hustle of people, shimmering and flickering lights, electric toys behind the mirrored shop windows create the vision of the literal electrified streets during Christmas. Meanwhile, the boy dreams of flying; at the beginning of the film he observed a paper airplane. “Maybe he could even buy the toy in the end, but he doesn’t convert the ticket into money, but realizes his idea of flying and folds the ticket into an airplane.” (Rudolf Worschech, epd film 9/92)
