A screening dedicated to rare and surprising contemporary animated films, most of which are directed by visual artists. Ozan ADAM creates a primitive animation emphasizing the plasticity of forms. Tomomichi NAKAMURA shows ants and a crow becoming symbolic intermediaries between a strong man, a short man and a pregnant woman. Vera Klute transforms the ordinary into the absurd. J Tobias Anderson reanimates extracts from film noir movies and points out the repetition and the wearing down of language. Diego DEL POZO BARRIUSO speaks about women and men submerged by things missing and the loneliness they experience in their work environment. Xenia LESNIEWSKI gives form to her fears and then animates them. Cecilia LUNDQVIST illustrates the inner thoughts of a house wife on the alternative uses of her work tools. Peter BURR shows the insane collapse of a world inhabited by sad clowns. Martha COLBURN illustrates the age-old fight between the weak and the strong. Federico SOLMI shows us a world without hope in a satire of the current economic crisis. Ulu BRAUN lays out a panorama spanning from Rotterdam to Sydney, gathering the symptoms of our society. Félix DUFOUR-LAPERRIÈRE assembles, juxtaposes and manipulates animated structures, little architectures that follow and overlap each other, springing up little clouds. Vladimir TODOROVIC deploys auto-generating processes and adapts a novel into abstract visual and sonorous forms.
