The Pond

The Pond (6min.)

Director:Huang Ying
This animation is classic chinese painting style. It is seemed softly and elegantly. And the two dragon flies are vivid and depicted elaboratly. We almost ignore the movement in this film, just deeply sink into the beautiful and scilent atmosphere.


NASIJA (11min.)

Director:Guillermo Rios
The expression of this film is untradditional and story-self is attractive.The montage in this film is extrally wonderful and greatly influences my emotion.And the unnormal viewpoint and meaningful color make me experience a terrible punishment to death.

The Whistle

The Whistle (19min.)

Director:Jung, Youngho
It's a extrally moving story. The plot is simple but has great power to shock others. The behavior of this little boy are ordinary but stand up his complex feeling. The images are similar to this plot:look like peaceful but suddently give a great hit on your mind.



Director:Tonny Trimarsanto
The transsexual are strange group around us. But this director uses his camera directly to their life.And through their behavior and words, we can understand their heart eager to respected by others. Images in it are to common to notice camera's movenment and changes between each single picture.

Exploding Buds

Exploding Buds (20min.)

Director:Petra Schroder
It is an ordinary fairy tale about love. But the expression is very intresting. Light and fresh colors make it like a classic living theatre. And director also puts many superrealistic elements in it. They are really imagic. The picture of this film is great and attractive.

It gives us a lovely imagination about clouds.
Images here make us feel like watching through fog.Very interesting!
