STEVEN AND THE BETTLE
Stefan i Żuczek, 2012, 12:20
Director: Piotr Loc Hoang Ngoc
Production: PWSFTviT ŁÓDŹ (Film School Lodz)

Is there a place for friendship in the world dominated by callous health rules? For a friendship that is a misalliance. Stefan is a successful swim coach loved by women. His life is turned upside down when he meets Beetle. Beetle embodies everything that is forbidden in the Stefan's world. Will their friendship last? Will Stefan be able to kill qualms of consience in the same way as he kills the smell of his friend with scented trees? A film by animation and special effect student from Lodz film school does not give clear answers but it makes an accurate diagnosis of human relationships. The animation about Stefan and Beetle should not be called surrealistic. On the contrary, in Piotr Hoang Ngoc's animation real reflection about loyality and alienation of an individual is hidden under the guise of grotesque realities.

Why should you lose time if you can spend it on watching TV? So Mr Potato has everything organise, lives peacefully and devotes himself to his new passion- staring at the box. But one day...

THE GOVERNANCE OF LOVE
O rządach miłości, 2013, 13:15
Director: Adela Kaczmarek
Production: Towarzystwo Inicjatyw Twórczych „ę”

It is an animated documentary about imagination. The protagonist lives in several realities at the same time. Real people and events intertwine with those created by his imagination. He looks for a place for himself in this world and does it in his own unique way. He spins a tale while dreaming about the rule of love in Poland. Despite its naivety, his world ignites thought about the existential notions of good and evil. The author uses animation to show the inner life of the mentally ill patient and for the visual value of the film uses images created spontaneously by the protagonist.

ARS MORIENDI
2013, 7:22
Director: Miłosz Margański
Production: UA POZNAŃ

To what extend can our live be planned? Do we ever let the coincidence influence our plans? "Ars moriendi" seeks to answer these questions. The main protagonist's struggles with the surrounding reality are performed in the context of the Art of Dying - a medieval manual on the procedures of reaching the salvation through "dignified" death. All set in quite austere, cardboard scenery.
