#1

HALF WET

What can I say about this first film of the marathon? Well, it’s strangely beautiful, in its own way. Welcome to the kingdom of weirdom

 

 

 

 

 

#2

THE PUB

The charm of a London pub. Joseph Pierce brilliantly captures the real face of alcoholism (although in northern Europe, nobody uses the word “alcoholism” – everybody just calls it “tradition”)

 

 

 

 

 

#3

VAGABOND MUTANT LIQUID

Another chapter in the kingdom of weirdom

 

 

 

 

#4

THE REHABILITATION OF SLEEP

A painting comes to life

 

 

 

 

 

#5

DOGS OF LIFE

A Lynchy tale about a superhero dogman who saves the day

 

 

 

 

#6

THE WOUND

A Russian animation about a woman who creates an imaginary evil creature and then has to live with it. From Russia, with love

 

 

 

 

#7

ODIN’S AFTERBIRTH

This one feels like a demented version of Game of Thrones (on acid). Nice.

 

 

 

 

 

#8

GLEN KEANE – STEP INTO THE PAGE

An animator from Disney talks about drawing in a 3D environment and gives some fascinating perspectives on the future of animation and art

 

 

 

 

#9

THE VISIT

From Vienna, Austria.

 

 

 

 

 

#10

THE AGE OF CURIOUS

Try wrapping your mind around this film… A strange dream, beautifully executed.

 

 

 

 

#11

WHOLE

From the National Film School of Denmark. Very impressive. Sort of a Danish techno variation on Alice in Wonderland

 

 

 

 

 

#12

TABASUM

An Afghan girl tells the story of a boy she loved

 

 

 

 

 

#13

OUR WEAPON IS OUR TONGUE

From Buenos Aires, a very cool cloth animation. I’m bookmarking this one for Sam

 

 

 

 

 

#14

CODA

Here we are, the last film of the summer marathons! I’m happy to wrap up this series with a beautiful Irish film about life, death and afterlife.
