See Me (Patty Stenger, Yvonne Kroese, Nederland, 2020, 8’)

When nobody sees you, you seem to disappear. Only when you fall, you seem to belong, just for a little while. A surreal and freakish view of the world through a child’s eyes.

Jeanne was born in 1959 in Saigon. She enjoyed a privileged lifestyle, protected from the war between North and South Vietnam. Fascinated by horses, Jeanne rode a mare called Bach-Hông. But on April 30th 1975, the communists stormed the city.


Seoulsori (Kyoung-bae Kim, Zuid Korea, 2019, 3’)

An anxious young man is drawn into a painting of a procession, and soon enough wishes he weren’t! Music video for Korean rapper Peejay.


I’m Here (Julia Orlik, Polen, 2019, 15’)

An elderly man is looking after his paralyzed wife. Despite his old age and health problems he’s doing his best to relieve her suffering, which is getting worse day by day. His daughter helps him, trying to balance care with her work in the hospital and family life. Everyone has a different view on how to properly care for the sick, which often causes arguments.


Affairs of the Art (Joanna Quinn, Les Mills, Verenigd Koninkrijk, Canada, 2020, 16’)

With Affairs of the Art, British animator Joanna Quinn recounts another gloriously unhinged chapter in the adventures of Beryl, the comic everywoman she unleashed upon the world with her debut film Girls Night Out. This short showcases one family’s eccentric yet endearing obsessions with everything from drawing to screw threads and pet taxidermy.
