Synopsis

These animated films, made using different techniques, focus on specific locations - the viewer goes to Rome, USA, Serbia, and the Congo while  Dreamland takes us on a trip to a fantasy land created by our own senses.

The last film of the session, This Magnificent Cake! lasts 40 minutes and fits into both the short and long movie category. It premiered at this year’s Cannes’ film festival. The stop motion steps straight on Belgium’s toes, telling the story about King Leopold’s conquest of the Congo. “Cute” felted puppets embodying different historical characters reveal the background behind one of the 19th century’s largest genocides.

Synopsis

A town on the borderlands of Texas. A place out of time. A desert where strange lights dance in the night sky. A mecca for lovers of minimalist art. A landscape of lost horses, freaks and food trucks. And then there’s the giant lemon.

The Common Space
The Common Space
Synopsis

It is not a landscape and not a modern city. It has never produced a language nor an industry. It is a city of wonderful ruins, that produces nothing. Built with cutted, distorted and superimposed images extracted from the collective imagination of cinema. It is a microcosm. A layered document containing evidence of urban and filmic evolution.
