Through animation, imagination can soar beyond our wildest dreams.


Animation is a freeing medium where imagination sets soar. One animated documentary reveals the many difficulties prevalent for people crossing borders in order to be with the ones they love. Then, an abstract, analogy animated film explores harmonic ratios in movement and relations between word-picture and sound. In a Swiss film, identity, friendship, relationships are all interconnected. In the last short, there’s this fragile moment where the boundary between fantasy and reality is shattered and everything is changed.
