Animated short film

Špela ĈADEŽ [Slovenia]


Filip lives in a poor neighborhood, dreaming of writer’s glory and a luxurious lifestyle. One day he gets a knock on the door. His neighbor Tereza, an older prostitute who Filip tries to avoid by all means, asks him to write a letter to her fiancé. Filip agrees. This seems to be the end of it, except not a week later Tereza shows up again, asking him to write an answer to the previous letter. This puppet animation is based on a short story by Maxim GORKY.
