The Kite

Martin Smatana | Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland | 2019 | 14 min

The graduation film of Slovak director Martin Smatana uses symbols and tender metaphors to poetically tell the story of a young boy dealing with the death of his grandfather. This artistically atypical film made using a demanding animation technique is intended mainly for children. It wants to show them that even though all beings must eventually pass on, there is a way to still be with them.

On the Same Wavelength

Radoslava Lacková | Czech Republic | 2018 | 7 min

Radoslava Lacková’s animated film proves that even beings that seemingly have nothing in common can sometimes find themselves on the same wavelength.
