Festival Guide: Day Two

Added: November 20, 2018

After the exciting inauguration, we invite you to take part in the events taking place on Wednesday. The second day of Etiuda&Anima starts with the screenings of two children's animations – “Babsy” and “Captain Morten and the Spider Queen”. Next, we will show you the document about the Czech master of contemporary cinema – “Miloš Forman: What Doesn't Kill You...” In the evening, we encourage you to see two full-length animations: Nina Paley's  “Seder-Masochism” and the thought-provoking “The Magnificent Cake!”  by Marc James Roels and Emmy De Swaef. At the Małopolska Garden of Art, the Etiuda&Anima competition screenings will be joined by the Polish animated films competition ANIMA.PL. The first appearance from the Self-Portraits of Animation Authors series will undoubtedly turn out as the event of the day because of Paul Driessen – an author of Academy awarded short animation “3 Misses”, and the coauthor of “Yellow Submarine”. At the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts, our special guest, Wojciech Bąkowski, will present his audiovisual works from the Between the Media series, later on joined by the installation created by the students of Professor Virgil Widrich. Nederlandse Filmacademie will be awarded the Special Golden Dinosaur for the best film school of IFF Etiuda&Anima 2017. At the Krakow Technology Park we will open the 2-day conference “Animation, feature, documentary film – on the synergy of connections”. We also invite you for the screenings of the films by the laureates of the 25th anniversary of Etiuda&Anima, and the films commemorating the 50 years of animation in Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.

A 10-year old Morten Viks wants to be just like his father. He constructs a model of a ship and dreams of a distant sea voyage. One day he unexpectedly shrinks down to the size of an insect and becomes a captain of his own ship. Sailing turns out not to be an easy task, however…

Woody Harrelson, Javier Bardem, Natalie Portman, F. Murray Abraham, Annette Benning, Michael Douglas – all these stars pay tribute to one man. Miloš Forman, the man in question, was undoubtedly one of the greatest masters of contemporary cinema.

Loosely following a traditional Passover Seder, events from the Book of Exodus are retold by Moses, Aharon, the Angel of Death, Jesus, and the director’s own father. But there’s another side to this story: that of the Goddess, humankind’s original deity. “Seder-Masochism” resurrects the Great Mother in a tragic struggle against the forces of Patriarchy.
