Black Slide

Animated short film

Uri LOTAN[Israel]


Eviah, a young boy on the brink of puberty, and his best friend sneak into the scariest ride in a waterpark. The fear grows as his turn approaches and reaches its peak just before going on the ride. Once he starts sliding, however, he notices that the initially pitch-black interior of the slider gradually becomes brighter and brighter. The work depicts how a timid boy grows mentally by overcoming his fears and making up his mind.
