Wet

Chloé Peyrebrune, Elvira Taussac, Lauriane Montpert, Marianne Bergeonneau, Mélina Mandon | France | 2021 | 6 min

A spa is a perfect place for seduction. Naked bodies, steam, sweat and an almost palpable sensuality. A masseur catches the eye of one of the ladies in the spa and becomes the target of her lust. Their tantalising game begins with a massage, after which the protagonist finds himself in a maze of feelings and bathing bodies. Thanks to the film’s magnificent 3D animation, viewers can experience strong feelings of bodies.

In the Upper Room

Alexander Gratzer | Austria, Hungary | 2022 | 9 min

Each year, a young mole visits his blind grandfather in his burrow deep underground. As the years go by, their relationship becomes increasingly intense and important questions arise. The film’s style, combining a certain naiveté and absurdity with philosophical overtones – which the author used in his previous film – builds on refined dialogues.

Crush On

Shu-yu Chu | Taiwan | 2021 | 5 min

The moment I saw you, it was as if a train had gone through my head… The author manages to depict the fleeting moment when one experiences the ‘crash’ of love at first sight with a metaphor of an uncontrollable train hurtling through the streets. We find ourselves in a Gondryesque world inside the head of the young protagonist, where the artificial meets the real.

Three friends like spending their time together in a park. This time, Colin suggests they can pretend to be a family.

Mom, What’s Up with the Dog?

Lola Lefevre | France | 2021 | 8 min

Little Gwen and her dog share a passion for exploring. As for one’s own sexuality, the animal seems a bit more experienced and the 11-year-old girl finds inspiration in the dog. As it turns out, significant milestones in one’s life often come hand in hand with embarrassing or disgusting moments. The eventual feeling of self-realisation and liberation is, however, priceless.
