Director Paula van der Oest was nominated for an Academy Award for her film ZUS & ZO in the category „Best Foreign Language Film“ and she directed the international success BLACK BUTTERFLIES.

What happens when the economic crisis hits? It soon becomes painfully clear that the lives of people from all strata of society and located in countries all around the world, are far more con-nected than one would expect. The Domino Effect is a tapestry of stories showing us what ensues, when the blanket of financial security is pulled away and hap-piness and well-being prove fragile.
