Balaclava

Youri Orekhoff | Belgium | 2021 | 8 min

Nadja and Tina love long, varnished nails and enjoy wearing balaclavas covering their entire faces. Why wouldn’t they? You can’t just break into someone’s flat with your face uncovered! Distinct stylisation, often minimalist animation and the expressive gesticulation of both anti-heroines turn this film into a uniquely entertaining, albeit illegal, ride.

A quiet lunch in a restaurant turns into an unexpected drama.

Sara Priorelli | Italy | 2021 | 3 min

One house, its inhabitants, and their efforts to satisfy their needs.

Golden Margarite

Keren Karasik | Israel | 7 min

A housing estate somewhere in the suburbs doesn’t offer many possibilities for meaningful activities. The dismal feeling isn’t improved by the only sounds ‘brightening up’ the dreary place. The buzzing of electric lines, noises from buildings and chimneys create a unique soundtrack to the lives of three teenage boys from post-Soviet Europe whose day is portrayed in the film.
