MARBLES by Natalia Spychała has previously received a special distinction at the Slovenian Stoptrik Film Festival, as well as the award for the Best Experimental Animated Film of the ReAnima Bergen International Animation Festival in Norway.

The ANIMA programme also includes a short film PSIE POLE by our graduate Michalina Musialik, produced by Fumi Studio, as well as a full-length film ZABIJ TO I WYJEDŹ Z TEGO MIASTA  by Mariusz Wilczyński, our lecturer.

A hypnotizing pendulum sets a mechanism in motion. A figure appearing fragmentarily, space and a variety of objects form a rhythmic system of mutual dependence. Sound interweaves with image, creating music of repetitive events. What is the cause and what is the effect? A stop motion animation made with threads on a vaseline coated glass plate.
