Two for two / Dva na dva

Jelena Oroz (BONOBOSTUDIO)

A moody portrayal of the moment we stop loving others and fall in love with our fantasies. If we cannot understand each other, maybe our avatars can find a common language? But whatever lies below the surface should stay that way. We are fine. Our lives are milk and honey. Everyone pets their own bunny.

Estonia, 2018, HD, 12'30''

Bless you! / Na Zdrowie!

Paulina Ziółkowska (POLISH NATIONAL FILM SCHOOL IN LODZ)

Poland, 2018, HD, 4'45''

 

Warning: contagious! Germs fly around wildly in the hustle and bustle of urban life. You stand next to the wrong nose, and it happens in a flash. And what happens if you keep on infecting yourself? Employing expressionistic colour and surreal forms and figures, this animation poses questions about our interactions with one another.

 

Justification: A compelling film that stands out for its strong artistic expression and use of the animation medium, as well as its innovative premises and topic.
