Films in this screening:

Alexander Gratzer:

In the Upper Room

Hungary, Austria, 2022. 8 minutes.

Every season a young mole visits his blind grandfather, who lives deep underground in a comfortably decorated burrow. As the two grow older their relationship becomes more intense and important questions arise.

Cristóbal León, Joaquín Cociña:

Los Huesos

Chile, 2021. 14 minutes.

Los Huesos is a fictitious account of the world’s first stop-motion animated film. Dated 1901 and excavated in 2021 as Chile drafts a new Constitution, the footage documents a ritual performed by a girl who appears to use human corpses. Emerging in the ritual are Diego Portales and Jaime Guzmán, central figures in the construction of authoritarian and oligarchic Chile.

Vasily Chirkov:

A white white day
(Un jour si blanc)

Russia, 2022. 6 minutes.

There are a lot of little things and stories around us. A dog’s footprints on a road, the sound of a passing train, the color of dry autumn grass. We usually pass by without noticing. But if we recognise these moments, we feel how our own life is connected to them. A white-white day is about this.

Atsushi Wada:

Bird in the Peninsula

France, Japan, 2022. 16 minutes.

Children are dancing on the music under the supervision of their teacher. A young lady witnesses the scene and disrupts their rituals.

Joana Fischer, Marie Kenov:

Sweet Nothing

Switzerland, 2021. 4 minutes.

Rosa is sunbathing in her garden on a hot summer afternoon, when suddenly the idyllic peace is disturbed by the noise of a lawnmower. The gardener in the neighbouring garden is going about his work, while Rosa is increasingly ecstatic at the sight of his tender touch of the flowers.

Nicolas Piret:

The dog's leash
(La bride)

Belgium, 2021. 4 minutes.

The bell tower rings and the birds fly away. In the countryside on the outskirts of a small village, a dog tied to a very long rope, watches them disappear in the horizon. It’s time for him to go; Prance across fields; How far will his rope allow him to go?

Ivan Stojkovic:


Serbia, 2021. 6 minutes.

An experimental visualization of a personal diary that talks about struggling childhood and youth turns into a story about family, generations and all the lines they hold.

NIkita Diakur:


Germany, 2022. 12 minutes.

Attempting a backflip is not safe. You can break your neck, land on your head, or land badly on your wrists. None of that is nice, so my avatar does the trick. It practices on a 6-core processor with the help of Machine Learning. The processor is not the newest but still calculates 6 jumps per iteration. One iteration takes one minute, this is 360 jumps in an hour and 8.640 jumps in a day. I wouldn’t be able to jump so much myself.

Leo Černic:


Italy, 2022. 7 minutes.

Love is a superpower and Pentola is a superhero.
