Impossible Figures and Other Stories
Directed by Marta Pajek. Poland 2021. 16’10’
After a huge explosion, only an old couple remains in an abandoned city. An old woman wanders tediously through empty streets. She passes by the statues of some now completely irrelevant and long-forgotten victories. In the shop windows, she sees some abandoned and dead mannequins. In short flashback, we get to see those, who will never return to the city. Marta Pajek’s film is a post-apocalyptic portrait of the world where the human being and its existence means no more than a split second. The film is the missing part of the trilogy “Impossible Figures and other stories”.

Our film’s concept is Love & Hope, seen through the perspective of a lost cat. This film is divided into four stages according to the emotional changes of music. We want to convey that hope gives us the power to keep moving forward, and love makes our life no longer monotonous.

Over 50 animators from 19 countries collaborated to support Belarusians in their peaceful protests for fair elections and freedom. The animators offered their interpretation of the recent events in Belarus, creating the animated chronicles of these dramatic events. The white-red-white flag is a historical symbol of Belarus and has become a symbol of peace, protest, and hope for the people of Belarus. The youngest animator who participated in the project is only 12 years old.
