Papierkrieg (paper war) : An excellent work of fiction
While surfing today I came across this interesting video. Video is in German language, this video is about two kids who are arguing about whose plane is best. And you will see their imagination coming to reality and it start functioning as they think. Rapidly they get mad at each other and start a race of arms until it comes to the final clash with weapons of mass destruction where nobody could end up as a winner. The film deals with the fact, that kids have the possibility to break the borders of the real world through their infinite creativity. On one hand the story shows children’s playful fantasy and on the other it refers to situations in the real world.
I found its translation here which I am going to share with you, Thanks to Makaio (aka Matthias) for translating this wonderful film
