FIRST ACT PROGRAM – ANIMATION


MORFRUSIS, 10min, Columbia, Animation/Fantasy

A delirious fable about Rena, an enslaved ordinary frog who becomes a liberator. Where once existed a lush and paradisiac forest, now agonizes a desolate landscape of enslaved frogs forced by other stronger, armed frogs to operate a huge industrial, tree swallowing mill. How could our tiny protagonist ever defeat this evil regime and its gluttonous, narcissist leader? Hint: magic fruits are involved…someday, somehow, somewhere…

From the Stone Age to the Information Age, from fire to steel, from the Stonehenge to the International Space Station, what is the motive power behind us?

SECOND ACT PROGRAM – EUROPEAN EXPERIMENTAL


LAND OF MINE, 4min., Germany, Experimental 
Directed by Roman De Giuli

LAND OF MINE is an experimental macro short which is made with acrylic paint and ink on paper. The idea was to recreate the unique look on planet earth from space which sometimes rather appears like an abstract piece of art than a real photo. From far away, the surface of our planet shows the beauty of it’s landscapes, coasts and the sea in perfect order. It’s highly expressive visual aesthetics and it’s contextual narrative inspired me to create an artistic interpretation of what I’ll never see with my own eyes.

SUNFLOWERS SUTRA, 4min., Netherlands, Music Video
Directed by Ayla Spaans

The music video Sunflower Sutra is about finding your totem in the animal kingdom. The rooster, hare and pig; that stand for the constellations of My Baby’s band members, go through different phases where they discover their self during the totem ceremony. The video is divided into three sections: birth, ceremony and rebirth, each represented by a new twist in the track’s pacey sense of snaking momentum. The spiritual animals eventually breaking apart after finding their personal totem and feeling stronger than before. All handmade masks, outfits, and magic settings come together in a new surrealistic prehistoric dance world where it’s about finding your spiritual animal.

The music video is a testament to the resilient nature of children and their ability to overcome the biggest of pitfalls, though the most dangerous things in their paths are often people themselves.
