When she swings around her wand, she unleashes dark matter that forms a black hole, which sucks both Indigo’s and her own wand into it. The two friends blame each other, refusing to cooperate until Apollo steps in, sweeping them up and flying straight into the black hole. They bob and weave through traces of Nomo absorbed by the black hole to finally set eyes on their wands, grabbing hold and racing out as the hole closes in on them. The black hole implodes, sending the duo flying off Apollo’s back, only to be saved by Captain, who scolds them for their recklessness, but praises their efforts.

  31. COHABITATION / [συν]κατοίκηση 03:03
  32. Greece 2021
    Directed by: Korina Kamalakidou
    Production/School: Korina Kamalakidou

    This animation is a short presentation of brief moments from the lives of the residents of an apartment building. The central theme for the development of the story was to capture the image of some people living in an apartment building. Occupants of a building, people living next to each other and at the same time far away from each other. A situation that prevails in all big cities where the phenomenon of alienation between the inhabitants is very intense, especially in the buildings where they live, made me interested in creating this story. To tell my story, I choose the windows of the apartments as a place to present the heroes.Windows have always been an element of the house, apart from the door, which connected the outside with the inside. Also, their role in earlier times was to communicate between the inhabitants, as well as many times they were used for pumping "gossip" between neighbours.In recent years these habits are not as strong as they used to be, but they still persist in some small areas, such as on the islands.

  42. China 2021
    Directed by: Shiyu Tang
    Production/School: East China Normal University
    Dialogue language: Chinese, English
    Subtitles language: English

    In recent years, Japanese office workers put forward a new word "social animal" for self mockery. Because they feel like animals at work, they are just being used as tools, repeating things that are not important day after day without soul. This is a thought-provoking thing. Why do we get emptiness and pressure from our hard work? Line 0 is an attempt to simulate human beings as various tools in life in the form of real person posing. It shows a very regular and boring way of work, just like an industrial production line, which leads a repetitive and monotonous life every day. Zero represents nothing, which can be compared to the psychological state of work, nothing, no sense of achievement and satisfaction. This sense of emptiness will eventually overwhelm us. Only after work is over can we get a little breathing space in our dreams and fantasies.

    “The Birth of a Vampire Nation” is an experimental animated short film created using artificial intelligence and surrealist techniques. This video explores the use of fear in racial and gender politics as well as in popular media, taking inspiration from F. W. Murnau’s 1922 vampire film “Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror” and D. W. Griffith’s 1915 “The Birth of a Nation.” The video uses scenes from both films, redrawn using artificial intelligence trained on microscopic images of blood and telescopic images of distant stars. The scenes are assembled into a new narrative using a variation of surrealist “exquisite corpse” techniques, and set to a score composed of human heartbeats and radio waves from outer space.
