Event Details

AN-EMOTION

From their inception, animated films have promised us a world which before we could only dream of. The filmmakers on this year’s animated program channel the hope for a new world be it seen through eyes of a little afghan girl, a trash collecting insect, or a punk down on his luck. 

 

ABUELAS –Dir: Afarin Eghbal – ANIMATION - 0:09:16 – UK/ARGENTINA

In a small apartment in Buenos Aires, an old woman eagerly awaits the birth of her grandchild and all the joys of becoming a grandmother. However, horrific circumstances mean that she will be forced to wait for over 30 years. Using real-life testimonials this animated-documentary raises issues of memory, repression and loss.

 

ALIAH –Dir: LAB81 – ANIMATION - 0:03:24 – ITALY

Seeing and listening the harmony of a carillon to find serenity in spite of the cruelty of war, through a dream and the eyes of an Afghan little girl, Aliah. The carillon, symbol of memories and time passing, makes everything sweeter through its melody. Hope for a better world.

 

BRITTLE CRYSTAL - Dir: Ilya Kolesnikov – MUSIC VIDEO - 0:04:44 – RUSSIA

Animated music video to the song Brittle Crystal by the Russian group Everything is Made in China. The musical video, “Brittle Crystal,” is a video-comic whose major topic is the state of a person in the modern information era

 

Little Kaiju – Dir: Jonathan Baker – ANIMATION - 0:04:08 – USA

Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown – Dir: Olya & Vira Ishchuk aka The Mad Twins- MUSIC VIDEO - 0:03:20 – UKRAINE

Lost legend of punk, blues & country loom in this music video from Social Distorsion showing how their music leaves indelible marks on the lives of the people they've touched.

 

FLY BY NIGHT: The Deep Nod – Dir: Michele Kadison – ANIMATION -  0:01:27 – COSTA RICA

FLY BY NIGHT is a unique show that uses classic film noirs as lot templates. From 'The Big Sleep' to 'Touch of Evil, 'FLY BY NIGHT' loosely borrows basic story lines, sets them in a suburban backyard, throws in a vast array of insect characters, and adds lots of laughs thanks to the humorously twisted world of our slick, crime-solving P.I., Ephram Bigley. By day our hero appears to be an average, blue collar, trash-collecting insect. But at night when the underbelly of 'the yard' springs to life, Ephram morphs into the super cool fly, 'Eyes' Bigley... the kind of fly that Raymond Chandler would tip his hat to: the slickest, coolest private eye in the backyard.

 

Shave it – Dir: Fernando Maldonado – ANIMATION - 0:04:31 – ARGENTINA

In a jungle where giant bulldozers shave the vegetation, a monkey finds a razor and decides to use it. With a human appearance, he moves to the city and sets out to climb society's ladder.

 

PostHuman – Dir: Cole Drumb – ANIMATION - 0:06:00 – USA

Set in an adrenalized future of espionage, assassins, and out of control super science, PostHuman follows a genius hacker and his dog as they help an enigmatic young woman to free the remaining test subject of a black ops ESP test lab.
