|International Animation Exhibition - Presentation|
From a banal conversation between two friends to an awesome exercise with the possibilities of image and frame. The 12 films that make up this edition of Animation shows unite some of the most exciting work to have been evaluated by the selection committee. The sample from several countries (France, Netherlands, Spain, Finland, England, Switzerland and Canada) is inventive, creative, complex and often confusing. Put aside any false idea of the typical characteristics of an animated film. What you will see here is quite different - and deeply stimulating.
The playful in various forms is present in "Amar”, "The Eagleman Stag", "Daniel, Une Vie en Bouteille" and "(EGO)," as well as the search for a certain type of shock comes from "Chienne D 'histoire "and" Mad Dogs and Englishmen".
It's really an infinite world, of this show, and words will never be enough to make justice to the films themselves. Here it is shown that the animation before being a technical choice, can (and should) be an aesthetic definition. In this way, it can renounce of wanting to be visually competent to become, above all, artistically relevant.
