2nd ANIMA.PL competition screening – 25th IFF Etiuda&Anima



A film made in memory of Marek Serafiński, an animation director, producer and husband of the author. It is a graphic and sound memoir from paper waste such as labels, price tags, tickets etc, as well as boxes of cigarettes smoked by a nicotine addict over the period of six years and collected by one particular collector. It shows the magnitude of the smoker’s addiction, but also the determiniation and a kind of addiction of the collector, as well as passing of time in a strange symbiosis of the life that they shared together.

Świat, który uleciał na grzbiecie krowy / A World That Flew Away On The Back Of A Cow / Świat, który uleciał na grzbiecie krowy

In an asphalt-coloured world, more and more cars hurtle through a village, more or less nose to tail. Granny and Gramps live quiet lives, weathered by exhaust fumes, Granny on one side of the road and Gramps on the other. They’d like to meet up once in a while, but with the traffic racing by almost non-stop, they barely even manage to catch a glimpse of each other in the gaps between one vehicle and the next.

Miazmat / Miazmat

Miazmat is an attempt to recontruct (reverse engineering) the vision which inspired S.I. Witkiewicz to paint his „Composition” in 1922. The animation was made on the basis of the assumptions of the artistic theory of the so-called „Pure Form” created by Witkiewicz, which claims that the main function of art is to provoke a feeling of metaphysical anxiety, or mystery of existence.

Bohaterem filmu jest głowa starszego mężczyzny, który traci włosy. Ostatni z nich upada na ziemię. Starzec wspina się na sufit i upada na ziemię. W wyniku upadku ma wizję. Widzi otchłań pełną symboli, w której czuje się wolny i spełniony.
