Chinti Natalia Mirzoyan/2012/Russia/8`

The world of the little ant is limited to the river on the one side and the wall on another. His shore is like a trash dump, and daily routine of ant’s family seems unreasonable and boring.
Suddenly his life changes when he finds an entrance ticket with Taj-Mahal image on it. The ant falls in love with the image, but realizes that he will never see this building. So he decides to build his own Taj-Mahal, not worse than the original one, certainly not even imaging the real scale of it. He makes own Taj-Mahal from rubbish, but all of his attempts are just ridiculous, and he destroys one copy after another. Is there any sense in his efforts?

Espero? Simone Giampaolo/2013/United Kingdom/4`

Graduation film created at the National Centre for Computer Animation in Bournemouth (UK) by Simone Giampaolo, Yifan Hu and Henrik Linnes.

ESPERO? (HOPE?) is a humorous, entertaining but also educational animated comedy which sarcastically shows how Gaia, our planet Earth, met humankind years and years ago, and all the problems which followed. A criticism of our modern society and of the way we’ve been “evolving” over the centuries.

First  Fish Veronika Göttlichová/2012/Czeck Republic/13`

An old fisherman sits by the sea, catching small glittering fishes, symbolizing his memories.

A little girl searches, but doesn’t seem to be able to find her own memory. Instead, she dreams of what life could be when she grows up and keeps hiding her little pink dreams in seashells she finds along the coast. Then one day, the fisherman catches a fish that doesn’t belong to him… A poetic story about the importance of memories and dreams in the human cycle of life.

As the waves in the sea are generated and cease to exist, so does human life begin and end in non-existence. With a touch of tender melancholia, this poetic short depicts how old age and childhood are surprisingly close and how treasured are the memories and dreams that we carry in our hearts or keep locked in our inner imaginary worlds, making us all part of the endless cycle of life.
