Ties

Dina Velikovskaya | Germany, Russia | 2019 | 8 min

Ties between parents and their children can sometimes be so strong that the parents wish that it was impossible to break them. But despite that, a moment comes when children who reach adulthood decide to stand on their own feet. The Russian director used the 3D pen technique of animation to capture this very moment and its effects.

And Then the Bear

Agnès Patron | France | 2019 | 14 min

This allegorical and emotionally and visually captivating film is a vision of a children’s revolt against sadistic parents. Houses are burning, men and women trembling in fear and children are saddling bears to turn their “revolution” into a wild and boisterous dance. The author has already made several short films with strong themes that achieved success at various festivals.

Deep Love

Mykyta Lyskov | Ukraine | 2019 | 14 min

This fresh film from Ukraine made by Mykyta Lyskov, graduate of the Kyiv National University of Theatre, Cinema and Television, is full of absurd scenes which the author uses to interpret the contemporary Ukrainian society. Lyskov relentlessly lines up one scene full of black humour after another and stylises everything in a distinct artistic expression.

Morning

Vojtěch Domlátil | Czech Republic | 2019 | 4 min

Tireless Czech experimenter Vojtěch Domlátil, who focuses on nature and movement through the landscape, presents this black and white (or rather white and black) morning impression that he likes to call “a breathing meditation in the form of a fully linear animation”. We watch undefined and minimalist and yet familiar spectacles accompanied by everyday morning sounds.

Old Hag

Julie Rembauville, Nicolas Bianco | France | 2020 | 8 min

Jean-Luc sets out from Paris to a place hidden in the middle of the Louisiana wetlands. Endless fights with his mother-in-law have forced him to seek a voodoo practitioner. At first, everything goes the way he imagined, but his expedition ends abruptly. After fifteen years of working together, renowned French filmmakers Julie Rembauville and Nicolas Bianco know exactly how to escalate suspense and time their gags.

The Physics of Sorrow

Theodore Ushev | Canada | 2019 | 27 min

Renowned animator and director Theodore Ushev presents another ambitious film, this time with almost 30 minutes of running length. It is once again a suggestive and visually mesmerising epic. The Physics of Sorrow tracks an unknown man’s life as he sifts through memories of his youth in Bulgaria through to his increasingly rootless and melancholic adulthood in Canada.
