Portrait of Suzanne

Izabela Plucińska | Germany, Poland, France | 2019 | 15 min

This surreal story about loneliness, love and jealousy is an adaptation of a story by Roland Topor made by renowned director Izabela Plucińska. The director sticks to her original claymation style that she stretches to the extreme. In her film, a man tries to chase away loneliness by eating. When he finally finds love, it happens to be inseparable from his own body. This strange story has an even stranger ending.

Coming Home

Benjamin Swiczinsky | Austria | 2019 | 4 min

This humorous and ironic film was made largely in the form of a music video. The author depicts a situation when the native Americans are finally returned their land and the immigrants now have to return to where their ancestors came from. A film packed with stereotypes illustrating the absurd discussion about sending all people back to their home countries.
