Ris v mestu / Un lynx dans la ville / A Lynx in the Town

Directed by: Nina Bisyarina

Črni in beli / Black & White

An animated short film for children about tolerance towards strangers. The proverbial 'black sheep' will be bullied out of the herd but only the brave outsider can protect them from harm.

Jama / Jáma / The Pit

In a desolate landscape, strange creatures walk in procession. The foreman picks a suitable spot and the whole multiplying colony starts excavating a pit.
