Comedy has been long associated with animation. Although the selected films would not always fall into that category, they are rather pointed and acerbic portrayals of the times we live in. They take all means available at their disposal to reassure that things can be more bearable if we care to make wild and daring connections. From Ukrainian urban reality to the forest and countryside, animals, people and their parts play inventive roles in showing that there is more than one way to be happy – otherwise they would be very sad indeed.
