NOSH NOSH short film programme 2

Nosh Nosh means "treats" in Yiddish. But these short films are neither snacks for in-between meals nor a greeting from the kitchen. They are works of art in their own right. Sometimes they are bitter, sometimes sweet and always full of thematic and formal diversity. The cuisine is international. It tastes good to everyone and fills you up. Nosh Nosh, in other words.
