What happens when an ambitious sea creature wants to discover the human world? And can you ever be satisfied if your dreams and ambitions are so boundless? The young and talented Dutch director Thessa Meijer is offering a unique view on universal themes such as dreams, ambitions and self acceptance. The short tragicomedy hosts a unique mix of absurdity, poetry and her enormous imagination, and has already won several (international) awards.
Selected by: Tina Farifteh, Film and art curator

In Art We Trust

We Are Public will keep investing in arts and culture. Now more than ever. That is why we launched In Art We Trust Fund.

Every month our curators select independent makers. Makers we think are brilliant and want to enable to keep working. Makers who we want to list in our programme!

Together we are creating innovative on- and offline programmes: an exciting series of events at unexpected locations. And we support the best progressive makers of our time financially.
