Synopsis

The oldest example in animated realities (hybrid of animation and documentary) is considered to be The Sinking Of Lusitania (1918) by Winsor McCay. This film recreates the tragic sinking of the passenger ship Lusitania on the Atlantic ocean in 1915 with the means of animation.
However the real flame that started animated realities as a genre and the explosive spread started only after the production of animated films became digital and the production of one of the most marginal films responsible for the boom of animated realities that is still going on, was Ari Folmans’ Waltz with Bashir (2018).
But what is animated realities?
Animations theoretic Steve Reinke has opened the concept of an “animated realities” as follows: “[...] if the same images were live-action, and filmed 24 frames per second, we would have a documentary”.
By uniting animation and documentary a unique combination of visualised mind and real world is created. Growing popularity of animated realities also describes our changed views of documentary and portrayal of reality. Animated realities is a genre for the future people and  cyborgs.

Synopsis

"Old snakes, loose teeth, hot tubs, and ugly people in your face. This is the world when you are four years old. The films are fueled by children’s untethered imaginations opening a portal to the real world of growing up in the inner city.
For nearly a decade, resident artist Nancy Kangas led a poetry program for preschool-aged children in Columbus. She was struck with how clearly her kids wrote about what they loved and feared. "

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.

We are ashamed, we protect ourselves and keep quiet.
