I Uus Eesti Anima 2016 I

  • 1h 40 min
  • Animation

New animated short films and international co-productions from both younger and veteran Estonian filmmakers.

The inarguable gem of Estonian film arts, on an international level, have been and continue to be Estonian animated short films. MADE IN ESTONIA, a collection of new Estonian animated short films, clearly show that this is still the case.

The programme is characterised by the extreme diversity of the films, both in content and style. This is one of the important factors of Estonian animation – everyone follows their own path, and there is no such thing as a unified school, which could result in clichéd work.

A story about a man and a snake, an inebriated penguin and the disappearance of birds. A story about an apple tree and apples, about roots and rootlessness. A story about a paradise and about the expulsion from that paradise.

The film invokes a past memory; an apartment that once existed; and a small girl dwelling and playing there. It presents a story forged in the dreams of a father hiding from Soviet terror. It is a reconstruction of a vision, with a backdrop of the anxieties present in 1950s Soviet Union.

Truth and justice are relative notions. Depending on the point of view, anyone could be right.

The fly rubs its hands. A man and a woman, inside and out, balance within and in between. The fly flies. The snails are swinging. The fly flies.

Amalimbo is the story of Tipuana, a five year-old girl who experiences the limbo when she tries to pass to ”the other side” in her desperate urge to meet again with her recently dead father. It is a short story that happens in an undefined place and an undefined future.
