15th Animation Division Jury Selections
Animated short film
The story is set on an airplane, a place where many people share a common fate. A man and woman who happen to be seated next to one another are each watching a romantic movie from the 1940s on their seat-back displays. The swirling camera gradually pulls the two into the world of the film, shifting back and forth between fiction and reality. Skillful camerawork, a distinctive animation technique with a traditional feel, and a Rachmaninoff melody guide this film through the space between dream and reality to the romance’s destiny.
