"Simba in New York" D, CI: Tobias Sauer, ED: Daniel Maaß, DE 2016

Running time: 31'

Walt Disney died 50 years ago. But to this day, millions of children grow up with the films he produced. The legendary director is still seen as the embodiment of the American Dream. A student writing his bachelor thesis remembers his childhood fascination with the USA. He lost his mother at an early age and always identified with Disney's orphan characters. But by now, a different kind of film has caught his attention: amateur films, “home movies.” He seeks the “real” America in these images. The film is an amazing essayistic “stream of consciousness.”
