TITLE “Bingo!” by Patrick Schoenmaker*
STUDIO/SCHOOL Frame Order
In a sad nursing home, where the personel have no regard for the elderly, a spirited and competitive old lady called Gerda has one consolation: the weekly bingo night. When the last drawn bingo ball suddenly disappears, she starts an absurd quest to retrieve it, turning the lifeless place upside down in the process.
'Bingo!' is an award winning tragicomedy cartoon by director Patrick Schoenmaker. Told with a healthy dose of in-your-face dark humour, this animated short is full of life lessons for growing old and shows us to value our elderly.
