2007 / 6 min

An experimental comedy about tennis balls, dancing cars, and God.


"A well-crafted, truly strange and highly atmospheric film that dares to ask the big questions."

"Look no further than DOXOLOGY."

"I'm stocking up on tennis balls and carrots, just in case Langan has discovered the one, true religion."


"DOXOLOGY ist ein einziger Mindfuck von Animation."
