Til We Meet Again
Do zobaczenia / Taaskohtumine
Animation short "Til We Meet Again" talks about the tragic history of a small Ruhnu Island. Fe-aring for their lives, its entire population abandoned their homes while escaping the war in 1944. Decades later they had a chance to finally return, only to find out that the strangers had settled in. In addition to the twists and turns of the history, "'Til We Meet Again" looks deeper into the meaning of home - is it merely a location or a place that gives one a peace of mind.

The story is set in a graphic design world where fonts are the main characters.

A negative space storm flushes everything away, but Regular comes and fixes the garden.

The Debutante
Debiutantka
A spirited young woman persuades a hyena from London Zoo to take her place at a dreaded dinner dance being held in her honour. Their plan requires a surprising amount of artistry and violence. The Debutante is based on a short story written by the artist Leonora Carrington, who was presented at the court of King George V and herself became a debutante in 1936. Elizabeth Hobbs celebrates Carrington’s bold and funny story with ink, paint and collage, accompanied by a score by composer Hutch Demouilpied.
