Fuse

Shadi Adib | Germany | 2018 | 8 min | EN

A little hole in the wall of a trap is its only contact with the world while a parade of distorted sadistic figures argue about its fate. Will a trapped rat survive until the end of the film? In her artistically expressive and disturbing film full of rough humour, the Iranian author plays God.

Sirens

Julia Tudisco | Hungary | 2018 | 4 min

As the sea waves crash on the beach, a group of women enjoy themselves while building a ship together and playing with dolphins. Meanwhile, above them, on the balcony of one of the houses, a sad girl sits on a cactus. The merriment below and the pastel coloured sea remind her of the freedom she is probably going to lose soon.

Monster

Ioana Laura Pop | Romania | 2018 | 5 min

Growing up isn’t easy. Definitely not for the hero of this artistically minimalist film, who tries to fight a monster with many eyes, a leg and a million requirements she should fulfil. Will she win this important battle or will the suspiciously familiar monster get her?

The Diver

Iulia Voitova | France | 2018 | 5 min

This film, specific with its inventive approach to the technique of paper cut-outs, indicates that sporting achievements aren’t always the result of the diligence of the athletes and the stubbornness of the coaches. Its author uses the natural properties of the chosen material to pay homage to the work of a sports massage therapist fixing broken bodies.

Happy Ending

EunJu Ara Choi | United Kingdom | 2018 | 5 min | EN

This film is based on anonymous testimonies by a Korean prostitute found on the internet. By means of captivating animation, its author explores the relationship of the protagonist to her own body and her perception of her status in the society as well as the arguable presumption that she must by definition enjoy her work.

Sigh of Sighs

Bo-seong Gim | South Korea | 2018 | 6 min

A greyish haze covers the Korean river Han. It turns animals and things into blurred black shapes. The biggest of them is a dead whale on the riverbank. It seems that it is not of any interest to anyone except a stray dog and a flock of birds. While the city lives on, the forces of nature prepare the colossus for a posthumous lamentation over the situation in the country.

Goderdzi

Petre Tomadze | Georgia | 2018 | 7 min

Funerals are usually not very amusing. But in this case, it is an unexpectedly (black humorously) uplifting occasion – when a gravedigger falls for a widow whose husband he is just burying. Daring and colourfully crafty artistic style underline the unique expression of this Georgian film.

Pétanque 51

Theo Guyot | Belgium | 2018 | 6 min | FR

Théo Guyot’s film about passion for the game and a longing for revenge will convince you that pétanque is definitely not a boring sport played exclusively by French pensioners. The author stylises the members of a young ambitious team and their veteran opponents as ruthless tough guys reminiscent of fearless superheroes.

Facing It

Sam Gainsborough | United Kingdom | 2018 | 8 min

You can’t say that Shaun likes to be alone. But he doesn’t exactly fit in with the others. With all the joyful and confident others. While he waits in a crowded place for his parents, he submerges into a vortex of memories of events that have shaped him. And he knows that he will have to face his fears tonight.
