original title: Botanical
country: Czech Republic
year: 2021
running time: 5 min.

synopsis

An experimental film which combines the artificial with the living, live action with animation, and explores the peculiar world of planet Botanical where pigs and camels grow from people's ears, cacti grow from people's teeth and violets from their nails. It's a creation of childish imagination which takes the form of a magic mountain landscape. It presents a space of liberty where you can escape from the dull and limited reality that resembles a greenhouse in a botanical garden.


"We rested in a plant refuge before the ascent but the night turned out to be an exhausting one as an old cactus was snoring incredibly loudly."
