The story of the fox who lost his mind

Shortfilm, 11 min

“A fox. A smart, handsome fox. He lived a long time and grew old, but also a bit forgetful.” A poetic animated film about growing old, about dementia and about generations living together.

The touching story of the aging fox was filmed based on the book by Martin Baltscheit. The author and illustrator himself lent his voice to the narrator. The fox is spoken by the well-known cabaret artist Jochen Malmsheimer.
