20th Animation Division Jury Selections
Animated short film
Alberto VAZQUEZ [Spain]
The world is a wonderful stage, but the characters in it are all disgraceful. In this short animation, a frightful story filled with horror and comedy unfolds in a traditional fable setting. Influences from printmaking techniques in the 19th century can be found in the black-and-white realistic backgrounds. Hidden sins of a society along with unavoidable painful human relationships are relentlessly revealed through this ironic, dark, existentialist tale.
