Waiting For the New Year

Animated short film

Vladimir LESCHIOV [Latvia / Lithuania]


Watercolor-painted animation describing the cycle of life through changing seasons, and hope coming after loneliness in one year of a woman’s life. Working as a lonely street cleaner, she writes a letter to a stranger on the first day of the New Year, hoping that in the coming year the seasons will change as usual and a dream-like miracle will occur.
