The film Kasino 2001 merges alienated Occidental signs to an updated version of the nativity play.

Tobias Kipp is a filmmaker, and he also draws. The declared goal of his filmic work is to produce an “extraterrestrial gaze” on certain life conditions; in order to achieve this, he redesigns, misplaces and rearranges real sets. He is a cofounder of the Weimar-based production company sonnendeck. tv.
