Bone-Chilling Slapstick

Kino Varšava - 14:30

As you may know, the theme of the festival this year is Animation & Humour in all its shapes and forms. Today, we’ll focus on morbid slapstick comedy with a selection of films from Disney’s classic The Skeleton Dance to Phil Mulloy’s darkly humours The Banker to Happy End that exemplifies the distinctive naive morbidity typical for Jaromír Plachý, the author of this year’s visual identity of this year’s Anifilm.

 

Flee

Kino Varšava - 16:30

This powerful award-winning animated documentary tells the story of an Afghan refugee in a captivating, very personal and unvarnished way. Flee is not only a ruthless insight into the world of refugees, it’s also an unforgettable story of getting to know one’s true self.
