Fa Ventilato
The letters on a departure board turn into grey figures with trolley suitcases hurrying through the high security airports of this world. A red wall abruptly puts an end to the journey of a restless man whose wide-spread arms melt like Icarus’s wings. Reality is punctured and the fatal contradictions of our globalised world are metaphorically exposed. Michaela Müller spent six years condensing her original sound sketch stills into a work of art.

Day after day the sun shimmers over the harbour and the cafés – the eternal Croatian summer as a drawn diary. Dynamics are created by the repetitive use of original sounds and the increasing reduction of the animated drawings: sketches turn into graphical abstractions, objects into blotches of colour, free forms into geometrical ones. And a summer that is more than the sum of its parts slowly takes shape in the viewer’s head.

Manivald (fox, 33) lives under his draconian, slightly weird mother’s thumb. His repressed behaviour takes a turn when the washing machine breaks down. That is, takes a turn when Toomas the plumber (wolf, sexy) appears with his “deluxe tools”. Candy-pink romance, tough drama and depth psychology, packaged with delicate comedy and a remarkable sense of timing by Chintis Lundgren.

A drunken drive through the night. A badger at the wheel. The car radio is the crooning, rhythmic companion that sets the beat of the reeling road, the dance of the headlights of oncoming cars. The beginning becomes the end of a very bizarre journey where speed is relative, compressed by Špela Čadež into a visually sophisticated and stunning flat figure animation.
