Catcalls

Anna Berezowsky, Laura Stewart | Canada | 2020 | 3 min

Even though it may seem otherwise, the puppet film Catcalls is based on real-life events. Its authors were inspired by real dialogues from incidents of sexual harassment of various intensities collected by Sophie Sandberg, who placed them in the streets of New York – where they actually took place. Despite starring horny dogs and disgusted cats, the film reflects a very topical issue.

Polka-dot Boy

Sarina Nihei | France | 2020 | 8 min

It was her passion for Estonian films that brought this Japanese director with an unmistakeable style to create animation. She studied in Europe and each of her films resonates pleasantly with the typically Estonian feeling for absurd situations. This film is no different. After a series of strange events, a boy with a rash on his hands finds a connection between his illness and a religious cult.

Comeback

Vladimir Leschiov | Latvia, Lithuania | 2021 | 8 min

In his latest film, Latvian filmmaker Vladimir Leschiov moves away from weird, hard-to-grasp situations and utilises nostalgia, atmosphere and his own memories. In Comeback, which is most likely his most personal film, we can see his long-lost passion from a childhood spent in the Soviet Union unexpectedly returning to the spotlight.
