Anča in Wonderland 1 (premiere)

Station Žilina Záriečie: S1
Duration 59:21

It would be a tough, unrewarding and thankless task to choose the weirdest people from around the world. In contrast, to make a selection of the most bizarre films submitted to Fest Anča is a very rewarding, interesting and instructive task. That’s why Fest Anča has a section where we present films “from behind the looking glass.”
