Animanima 2018 presents the jury of the Main Competition programme

This year’s members of Animanima jury for the main competition programme, Špela Čadež, Vessela Dantcheva and Nikita Diakur, are outstanding artists. By presenting them in a joint screening programme, we wanted to show most of all the richness of their talents, the unique modes of animated narration and the deep understanding of the expressiveness of animation techniques applied by them.

Ana Blum by Vessela Dancheva is visualised poetry, a surreal story of a longing of a man who is after a woman, based on and inspired by a 1919 love poem of the same name, written by Kurt Schwitters. The Traveling Country is a film telling a story about a clash between the past, present and future, but also a fantastic animated story about how to find personal identity and freedom. Boles by Špela Čadež is based on the story by Maxim Gorky, Her Lover. It is a sad story of two lonely people, neighbours, a young unaccepted writer and an ageing prostitute, victims to a curious twist of fate. Nighthawk is a bizarre story of a drunkard badger and his nocturnal feats. In Nikita’s film Ugly, an ugly tomcat tries to survive in fragmentary and shattered world, eventually finding a soul mate in a mystic chief, while his film titled Fest shows a rave party with lots of eating, drinking and – flying.

Some of these films we have already had a chance to see at our festival, while some will be shown for the first time here at Animanima. Whatever the case, let us succumb to the vibrant, thrilling diversity of visual expressions and the equally tempting emotional and intellectual labyrinths of these animated narratives, conveying the recognisable touch of their world-famous authors.
