III

Marta Pajek | Poland | 2018 | 12 min

III is a vivid and technically precise film by a Polish author who studied in the studio of Jerzy Kucia and whose style was also influenced by a study stay with Priit Pärn. This film, which is the third part of her triptych, depicts a man and a woman meeting in a waiting room. The characters play a weird and increasingly wild game in which their faces turn into masks and shapes lose their integrity.

Sister

Siqi Song | China, United States | 2018 | 9 min | ZH

This puppet film is set in China in the 1990s. Its main protagonist remembers his childhood that was considerably complicated by his “annoying” younger sister. Or was it not like that? This socially critical film with a pointed plot is a sad reflection of the Chinese policy that tries to limit the reproduction of the Chinese people in a very unfortunate manner.

Fest

Nikita Diakur | Germany | 2018 | 3 min | A suburbian blockparty. Rave, drone, bbq and icecr

In Fest, Nikita Diakur, the 'inventor' of a brand new real-time animation technique and the author of the revolutionary film Ugly, tests his unique method. This time, the result is a short film, an adrenalin game taking place during a street festival. Aesthetically, Diakur follows up on his previous film, but technically, he searches for new possibilities of his method.

Egg

Martina Scarpelli | France, Denmark | 2018 | 13 min | EN

This film is a black and white, slightly provocative and partially abstractly illustrated confession of a young anorectic girl. Its author convincingly explores the mind of her heroine confined in a small space. For the main protagonist, food is a choice, not a necessity. Home is a safe place for her illness and the experience of eating a boiled egg is comparable to sexual pleasure.

I’m Going out for Cigarettes

Osman Cerfon | France | 2018 | 14 min | FR

A twelve-year-old boy named Jonathan lives with his mother, who is always busy, his adolescent sister and a number of virtual men. They appear in drawers, closets and in the cupboard. They all share the same face and engage in a friendly dialogue with the boy. This sensitive but also ironically lightly made film boasting plenty of visual ideas depicts the emotions of a boy growing up in an incomplete family.
