Gozdni impro: Kača / Log Jam: The Snake

Directed by: Alexei Alexeev
Short synopsis:

Deep in the forest three animals love nothing more than freestyle jammin’ with their customized instruments. The bear’s on bass, there’s a howlin’ wolf, and the rabbit provides the beats – with his head.

Deklica po imenu Elastika / A Girl Named Elastika

Directed by: Guillaume Blanchet
Short synopsis:

Elastika is not like any other little girl. First, because she is made of elastics. Also because her universe is a land of cork. Her journey is also one of a kind, as she jumps from one building to another, crosses an ocean solo or travels to space holding on to a firework rocket. Her adventure, shot in stop motion, required over 10,000 pictures.
