Pastiche
Inspired by the concept of retromania, the filmmaker calls attention to the current trend of recycling older visual styles and artifacts from the last decades of the 20th century. The numerous defects in image quality and the psychedelic soundtrack from homemade cassette recordings were created on purpose when digitalizing the original analogue material.

Hoax
A flying saucer floats through the sky in black and white, creating the illusion of alien forces; upon taking a closer look, it’s obvious that it’s just a toy. The filmmaker examines the issue of videos spreading untruthful alarm messages using the same principles, highlighting the fine line between fact and fiction.

Night of the Hunter

Today

Unknown
The experimental film Unknown presents prototypical urban motifs, such as public transport and escalators, transforming them into abstract black and grey fragments using rotoscope animation to the accompaniment of authentic sounds. Using these scenes, the filmmaker is trying to evoke in the viewer the subjective feeling of alienation in the anonymous environment of a city.

Apart
In her short, emotional film about life after the loss of a loved one, the author enthrallingly deals with a difficult topic, using techniques of both feature and animated film. Real experiences of the narrators, accompanied by an animated reconstruction of the painful situation, create a mournful insight into the thoughts of three young people untimely exposed to death.

Moréna Rex
The video and rap clip confronts contemporary feminism and capitalism. The sober environment of economic forecasts and cash flows is transformed into a psychedelic 3D animation depicting a witch session. The film culminates with the author’s rap that hyperbolically criticizes the power and role of money in today’s society.

Abstract Horror
The philosophical dystopia presents warning outlines of the near future where modern technology will not be a sign of progress, but rather decline. Behind the layer of film images, there is a monster created by computer animation, whose abstract virtual body represents the invisible ideological administration.

Dialogue
A dialogue between audio and video reinterprets a scene from the movie The Stranger (1967, dir. Luchino Visconti), in which the condemned debates with a priest about the absurdity of life, death, and the non-existence of God. The debate is abstracted by the skewed image as seen through cut glass and the meanings of their words take on a certain timelessness.

And Then He Just Stopped
The author uses film as an art-therapy tool to cope with traumatizing experience of her own. Told from a child’s point of view, the story builds on the symbolism of both common and uncommon objects, a clay body, a writhing snake or a metal means of payment, projected into the narrative structure of repeating motifs.

Water Pure Azure
People’s limited view of the world often places the human perspective above the natural cycles. Visual details capture the egotism that often causes us to not see the essence of things, Together with an apt and uncompromising voiceover they call on us to become aware of the impact our actions have on our surroundings.
