Short animated film "The Little Soul" by Barbara Rupik selected for Cannes Cinéfondation!

"A dead body became stuck by a river bank. Its decaying insides still hide a human soul - a miniature of the deceased. Rotting organs part and a tiny creature gets out. Standing on the river bank, it says goodbye to the corpse and sets off on a journey through the post-mortem land."

Written, directed, animated and sound by: Barbara Rupik
Music: Maurycy Raczynski
Artistic supervision: Piotr Dumala i Piotr Milczarek

For its 22nd edition, the Cinéfondation Selection has chosen 17 films (14 live-action and 3 animated films), from among the 2000 submitted by schools all over the world. The important presence of Central and Eastern Europe highlights the vitality of filmmaking education in these countries. Six of the selected shorts come from schools taking part for the first time.
The Jury will hand over the three Cinéfondation prizes at a ceremony preceding the screening of the awarded films on Thursday 23rd May, in the Palais des Festivals Buñuel Theatre.

THE LITTLE SOUL will be screened as a part of the 4th Cinéfondation programme on Thursday 23 May at 11 :00 AM in Buñuel Theatre (5th floor of the Palais).
