Chloé Farr, Adam Sillard, Gabrielle Selnet | France | 2021 | 8 min

A man arrives in Paradise and his first and only concern is to find his beloved wife, Maryline. Has he crossed to the other side solely to find her?

Eating in the Dark

Inari Sirola | France | 2021 | 10 min

Siro is trying to find a way to get to know herself and her body. Will a unique vibrator passionately recommended by a sex-shop assistant do the trick? Or is defining one’s own boundaries and a trip through the forest at night better? Or both? This visually ‘wacky’ film full of pastel colours tells us that some people must work hard to find pleasure.

Blindness

Yu-seon Park | South Korea | 2021 | 5 min

The author of this hand-drawn film uses many metamorphoses and charming blurred watercolour images. At the same time, her disturbing film (taking place on a split screen) includes elements of horror and dark existential drama. It deals with alienation and loneliness at a time of social media and the confrontation of a human with a cold image on the screen.

The Prejudiced Hierarchist

Conform Cox | Netherlands | 2021 | 3 min

This inventive sequence of scenes contemplates the emancipation of certain species of animals. We observe the animals in various situations in which they achieve remarkable levels of humanisation and organisation. Who would have thought that hens can use cutlery or that bats give birth in maternity hospitals? Besides, the film is based on real events.

Underwater Love

Andrea Falzone, M. Cristina Fiore, Veronica Martiradonna | Italy | 2021 | 6 min

This film explores anxiety and plays with the aspect ratio, which the author changes according to the events happening in the film. A girl faces personal problems mainly related to her body and sexuality, and also her inner demons. The film is dominated by expressive drawing and genuine hand animation.

Lesser of Two Evils

Máté Horesnyi | Hungary | 2021 | 10 min

This black-and-white, grotesquely depressive spectacle intertwines several utterly absurd situations reflecting Eastern European mentality. It does so with a coarse and specifically Hungarian (meaning hard-to-grasp) humour. The centre of it all seems to be the fate of a bus driver reflecting his (apparently lousy) life after an accident.

Krak

Stan Lievens | Belgium | 2021 | 6 min

A man crawls out of a banana and explains how he found himself in the fruit. Meanwhile, a fish contemplates her own beauty. These two stories are observed and dissected and cause a reaction that cracks the reality the observer is in.

Love, Dad

Diana Cam Van Nguyen | Czech Republic, Slovakia | 2021 | 13 min

An original ani-doc by a young Czech-Vietnamese director who achieved success with her previous film, Apart. In her take on an animated documentary, the author goes one step further – she adds a personal level and with a combination of multiple techniques (including superbly executed replacing) tries to reconnect and reconcile with her father.
