Patata day

A Film by Peter Böving

Synopsis

This cinematic parable tells the story of five people in a diner who spin a yarn about potato dishes. In the next scene, funny animated potatoes appear. The audience cheerfully follows the film but understands that a highly topical issue is served with the potatoes on the plate.
