Of Love Dmitri Geller
Masterful, lushy coloured example of Russian cut-out animation. A
young boy draws inspiration from the images of his magic lantern.
Slowly, gently this film introduces more and more symbols of idylic
childhood as it takes the boy (and the viewer) more and more into
Once There Lived A
Secretary Of Defence Boris Korshunov
An interesting digital progression on the tradtional Russian cut-out
style. An adult fairy tale tracking the adventures of three brothers
who use their military skills – and fate – to search for
wives. All under the watchful, resigned eye of their eldery father
– the inemitable Secretary of Defence.
Siberian Express Pekka Korhonen
Pedro, the rabbit/man bar tender who serves up cactus drinks to his
thirsty customers each night seems remarkably hesitant to join his
muse, the hairy, volupturous Ramona, on the Siberian Express. This
a film that needs every one of it’s 13 minutes to help you come
to grips with the pure surrealist depths of its plot.
The Danish Poet Torill Kove
Academy Award Winner
Can we trace the chain of events that leads to our birth? Is our existence

a careless postman and hungry goats are threads in the fabric of the
narrator’s very existence.

In a world of enforced transparent conformity, the colourful people
stand out and are targeted by the state afraid of their many hues.

El Doctor Suzan Pitt
A film which operates on so many levels of the bizarre, it’s
almost impossible to know where to begin. A drunken small town doctor
finds himself immersed in a densely detailed hospital ward inhabited
by cast of weirdly wounded souls that could have been animated straight
off the pages of the Mexican version of Mad Magazine.
