Remember to Kiss Me When You Wake Up

director: Estefanía Clotti
original title: Acordate dame un beso al despertar
country: Argentina
year: 2021
running time: 23 min.


A grandmother, a mother, daughters. Despite living in one house, they exchanged letters. The first one was written in 1994, the last one 15 years later. In these letters, the women share their deepest feelings and insecurities. This autobiographical essay also takes the form of a letter. Its author revives the lively letter exchange through videos recorded on her mobile phone and her own animations. It is not only a dialogue of the women in the family, but also of the past and the present, of people and their images.


„It all started as a game. I would select videos that I recorded with my phone; I would print them and paint silhouettes over the real image of my grandmother, my mother, or my sisters. It was motivating to explore the contrast between those two images.“ (Estefania Clotti)


Estefania Clotti (1985), an Argentinian animator, illustrator and visual artist graduated from the Provincial School of Film and Television in Rosario, her native town. She authored several short films in which a particular social reality intertwines with inventive animation.
