Tio

Juan Medina | Mexico | 2021 | 13 min

Barren hills pierced by mine shafts hide more than just minerals. Generations of miners well aware of this fact were ready to make sacrifices to the mysterious ghost of the underground. Martin, the protagonist of this puppet story with horror elements, who thinks the nightmarish Tio is a mere fable, will have to prove his respect for tradition.

Anxious Body

Yoriko Mizushiri | France, Japan | 2021 | 6 min

This contemplative film gradually becomes unexpectedly disturbing and almost physically uncomfortable as the author combines individual innocent motifs and creates anxious anticipation of the climax of the slow scenes. The main role is played by the body, flexibility and the uncompromising rigidity and sharpness of the materials it encounters.

A Long Protracted Scene of an Accident

Lars Henrik Andersson, Lisa Rydberg | Sweden | 2021 | 15 min

A ten-year-old boy named Henrik must come to terms with the consequences of a creeping crisis threatening his nuclear family. The deliberately ‘crude’ stylisation of the film and usage of authentic home videos underscores the quirky black humour and the rawness of the anxiety little Henrik experiences under the pressure of responsibility.

Bad Seeds

Claude Cloutier | Canada | 2020 | 6 min

An acclaimed Canadian director introduces an inventive visual pun based on one of the fundamental strengths of animation – variability of form. We witness a fight between two plants, their efforts to outsmart each other and win, while their metamorphoses become a commentary on and a metaphor for human inability to perceive something in its entirety.

Swallow the Universe

Nieto | France | 2021 | 12 min

Everything was fine in the Manchurian jungle until a little boy appeared. His presence among the animals triggered a chain of crazy events and irreversible changes. In this visually mesmerising film, animal narrators comment on the rapidly unfolding events which mercilessly head towards the end of a scroll on which the film is seemingly drawn.
