The opening night of ETIUDA&ANIMA 2016

Krakow’s Etiuda&Anima is one of the most important festivals of the young cinema in Europe. Energy, emotions, spontaneity, freshness – six days of the festival will sparkle with incredible talents from all over the world. We will see hundreds of feature, animated, documentary and experimental films that sets the rhythm of the contemporary cinema.

We will start with a bang. The highlights of the opening night will be:


Screening of “Louise in Winter”  


The latest Jean-François Laguionie’s film, Louise in Winter (Louise en hiver, 2016), whose premiere screening opens our festival, has won the competition for the best animated feature at the prestigious festival in Ottawa. Its protagonist is Louise, who stays in a small seaside town. On the last day of summer she realizes that the last train has left without her. She is left alone in the deserted streets. The weather quickly turns for the worse, followed by the seasonal tides. Weathering the storm during these first few nights is very difficult. But soon the good weather returns to offer her an exceptional Indian summer. Louise takes her abandonment as a challenge. She builds herself a cabin on the shore, discovering at the age of 75 a Robinson Crusoe-like life, and realizes that she is more resistant and resourceful than she could have ever imagined.


Bovska concert


Bovska, alias Magda Grabowska-Wacławek was born in 1985 in Warsaw. She graduated from The Fryderyk Chopin University of Music and Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Aside from composing her own songs she also happened to write music for a string orchestra and for animated movies. About herself she says: “Ideator of songs that meander with music and lyrics. She breaks through the reality, even though sometimes she loses focus. Dreaming of a matchbox overlooking the clouds smelling like soil.” Bovska’s song “Kaktus” was used in TV series “Druga szansa”.
