A dreamy animated documentary about the dangers of early cinema. The atmosphere of old film theatres is recalled through a mixture of handmade techniques. In the back of the story moves Mr Sand, a mysterious character. Real or imagined.

What’s on aims at confronting the spectators with their fascination with, but especially their indifference towards violence. It particularly focuses on the violence against ‘women and the other weak’. The glorious leading role in this respect is reserved for the religious institutions which have institutionalized this kind of violence. For once god is not holy. Neither are the victims who turn into bullies themselves or, at least, passive accomplices. Like we all are. Question mark.
