In a joyless nursing home, a feisty elderly woman embarks on a maniacal quest to recover a lost bingo ball.
‘Bingo!’ is an award winning tragicomedy cartoon by director Patrick Schoenmaker. Told with a healthy dose of in-your-face dark humour, this animated short is full of life lessons for growing old and shows us to value our elderly.
In a sad nursing home, where the personel have no regard for the elderly, a spirited and competitive old lady called Gerda has one consolation: the weekly bingo night. When the last drawn bingo ball suddenly disappears, she starts an absurd quest to retrieve it, turning the lifeless place upside down in the process.
