The gustatory experience of eating a fish eye in a crowded restaurant opens new worlds to one of the guests. A surrealist thrill like a ghost train ride for the palate: the eye is red, the smell of the dishes is red. This animation drawn with fine white lines on a black background unfolds an eerily beautiful sensuality. The whole city breathes the red of this dizzying adaptation of a script by Ramón Gómez de la Serna, who used to work with Luis Buñuel.

In a cold society where technology has marginalised communication and interhuman relations, a group of women take a trip to an exotic realm of heat – the habitat of fine facial hair and charming penises: Moustache Island. The film takes a look at the absurd side of sex tourism, creating an illusory world of intense colours and exaggerated stereotypes in which human desire is reduced to possession. A fast-paced adventure.

Conceptual artist and musician Bastien Dupriez paints and animates abstract universes on vinyl in harmony with Minimal Music. He works his way through the possibilities of disc animation using optical reflections and other virtuoso games until he achieves a complex and sensual experience of art. In the midst of the (a-)synchronised relationship between sounds and single frames the film – quite beyond any narrative – is about the sheer joy of the l’art pour l’art of animation.
