Run Granny Run!

Director: Nikolaus von Uthmann.
The most dramatic race since BEN HUR! Sweet Granny is walking to her favorite spot at a lake when she gets overtaken by Mrs Messala. The old ladies maneuver their wheeled walking-aides in a breathtaking, funny but violent snail-pace race. Black humour + whacky comedy underlined by subtle social commentary, as if Monty Pythons had teamed up with Mike Leigh. The film has already been shown at festivals all over the world, and has won the Gold Remi Award of the WorldFest Houston (category: Best Original Comedy Short), and the Audience Award of the Kino Knock Out Festival in Altkirch, France.
