Από τη Γη ως το Φεγγάρι, Άγγελος Σπάρταλης (GREECE, 2013), 87'

from-the-earth-to-the-moon1-webΝτεκουπαρισμένα υλικά, Κολάζ

Η δημιουργία της πρώτης ελληνικής μεγάλης διάρκειας ταινίας animation στην μεγάλη οθόνη ξεκίνησε το καλοκαίρι του 2008 και ολοκληρώθηκε τον Μάρτιο του 2013, και η διάρκειά της είναι 96 λεπτά.

Βασισμένη στο ομώνυμο βιβλίο του Ιουλίου Βερν ("De la Terre à la Lune", 1865), η ταινία επικεντρώνεται κυρίως σε χιουμοριστικές αλλά και καυστικές κριτικές του συγγραφέα αναφορικά με τους πολεμοχαρείς σε όλο τον κόσμο, χωρίς να παραλείπει να τονίσει την απαράμιλλη ανδρεία τους.
Πρόκειται για μια "χειροποίητη" ταινία που κλείνει το μάτι στην υψηλή αισθητική και το "χυδαίο" γέλιο.

Μάγια η Μέλισσα– Η Ταινία, Alexs Stadermann (GERMANY/AUSTRALIA, 2013), 80'

maya-the-bee1-web2D computer animation

Η περίεργη μικρή μέλισσα Μάγια και ο φίλος της Βίλυ σώζουν την κυψέλη τους από την άπληστη σύμβουλο της βασίλισσας και τελειώνουν την μακροχρόνια εχθρότητα ανάμεσα στις μέλισσες και τις σφήκες.

Η μικρή μέλισσα Μάγια που μόλις εκκολάφθηκε είναι ένας μικρός ανεμοστρόβιλος που δεν πρόκειται να ακολουθήσει τους κανόνες της κυψέλης.

Ένας από αυτούς τους κανόνες είναι να μην εμπιστεύεστε τις σφήκες που ζουν πέρα από το λιβάδι. Όταν ο βασιλικός πολτός πέφτει θύμα κλοπής, οι σφήκες θεωρούνται υπαίτιες και η Μάγια συνεργός τους. Κανείς δεν πιστεύει ότι είναι το αθώο θύμα ,και κανείς δεν θα σταθεί στο πλευρό της εκτός από τον αγαθό και καλύτερο φίλο της, τον Βίλυ.

Μετά από ένα μακρύ και περιπετειώδες ταξίδι στην κυψέλη, η Μάγια και ο Βίλυ σύντομα θα ανακαλύψουν τον αληθινό ένοχο και εντέλει θα συνδεθούν με τους άλλους κατοίκους του πλούσιου λιβαδιού.

Oι Αγχώδεις Περιπέτειες του Τετραγωνοκέφαλου και του Στρογγυλοκέφαλου, Elliot Cowan (USA/ ROMANIA, 2013), 71'

the-stressful-adventures-of-boxhead-and-roundhead1-web2D computer animation

Όταν το σπίτι τους έχει καταστραφεί, ο Τετραγωνοκέφαλος και ο Στρογγυλοκέφαλος πρέπει να κατευθυνθούν προς τη μεγάλη πόλη και να πολεμήσουν με τη γραφειοκρατία,το ενοίκιο, τους αρουραίους και να διεξάγουν έναν αδυσώπητο αγώνα για να επιβιώσουν.

Τέχνη και βιομηχανία, φιλία και βρώμικο παιχνίδι είναι όλα μέσα σε αυτή την κατάσταση, την πιο αγχωτική από όλες τις περιπέτειες.

Ο παγωμένος Τίτο, Max Andersson & Helena Ahonen (SWEDEN/ GERMANY, 2013), 73' 30''

tito-on-ice1-webΗθοποιοί, Κούκλες

Για να προωθήσουν το βιβλίο τους "Bosnian Flat Dog", οι δημιουργοί κόμικς Max Andersson και Lars Sjunnesson αποφασίζουν να περιηγηθούν στην πρώην Γιουγκοσλαβία με τον μουμιοποιημένο στρατάρχη Τίτο μέσα στο ψυγείο.

Συναντούν μια σειρά από καλλιτέχνες, μουσικούς, εκδότες και άλλους χαρακτήρες που ζουν στη μετα-Γιουγκοσλαβική ανεξάρτητη καλλιτεχνική σκηνή. Καθώς το ταξίδι συνεχίζεται μέσα σε ένα όλο και πιο απίθανο περιβάλλον, οι πρωταγωνιστές αρχίζουν να αμφισβητούν τον εαυτό τους και την πραγματικότητα στην οποία βρίσκονται.

Παρακολουθώντας συνοριακούς ελέγχους να μετατρέπονται σε αυτοσχέδια φωτογραφικά στιγμιότυπα, θαυμάζοντας μεταλλαγμένα παιχνίδια της Disney, αγοράζοντας σουβενίρ χειροβομβίδα με χειροποίητο κέλυφος και ανακαλύπτοντας την τέχνη των ελεύθερων σκοπευτών σε κατεστραμμένα διαμερίσματα, ανακαλύπτουν ότι η αλήθεια μπορεί πράγματι να είναι πιο παράξενη από τη μυθοπλασία.

Ένας συνδυασμός από stop-motion animation με σκηνές ντοκιμαντέρ, η ταινία μετατρέπεται σε βόλτα με τρενάκι του λούνα παρκ μέσα σ' ένα παράλληλο σύμπαν, όπου όλα τα σύνορα αποσυντίθενται τρελά, ταυτόχρονα τραγικά, ποιητικά και ζοφερά αστεία.

Μέχρι να μας χωρίσει η Σμπόρνια, Otto Guerra & Ennio Torresan Jr (BRAZIL, 2013), 85'

until-sbornia-do-us-part-web2D computer animation, 3D computer animation

Τι συμβαίνει όταν το τείχος που χωρίζει μια μικρή χώρα από τον υπόλοιπο κόσμο πέφτει τυχαία; Ήσυχοι και κολλημένοι στο χρόνο, οι άνθρωποι της Σμπόρνια τώρα πλήττονται από τους ανέμους της νεωτερικότητας που ήρθαν από τη μεγάλη πόλη. Οι συγκρούσεις που προκαλούνται από μια βίαιη πολιτισμική σύγκρουση αναταράσσουν τις ζωές των πρωταγωνιστών Pletskaya και Kraunu - δύο αρκετά γνωστών Σμπορνιανών μουσικών.

Ως αποτέλεσμα της ηπειρωτικής παρέμβαση στις συνήθειες της Σμπόρνια, μερικοί ντόπιοι ξυπνούν αδρανείς παλιές πεποιθήσεις και επιδιώκουν να διασώσουν την δική τους μοναδική ταυτότητα.

Η ταινία βασίζεται στο θεατρικό μουσικό θέαμα Ταγκό και τραγωδίες των Nico Gomez και Hique Nicolaiewsky, που παρουσιάστηκε σε θεατρικές σκηνές σε όλο τον κόσμο με μεγάλη επιτυχία τα τελευταία 25 χρόνια.

Αυτή η ταινία μικρού μήκους είναι μια διασκευή της σάτιρας του 18ου αιώνα, του Βολταίρου με λίγα λόγια. Ακολουθούμε τον αφελή και αθεράπευτα αισιόδοξο ήρωά μας, Καντίντ στο ταξίδι του. Καθ' όλη την ιστορία, οι βασικοί ήρωες αλλάζουν και εξελίσσονται, ενώ μαθαίνουν τις λειτουργίες του κόσμου που τους περιβάλλει. Οι τρεις βασικοί χαρακτήρες συναντιούνται κάτω από διαφορετικές συνθήκες. Οι ήρωές μας εμφανίζονται με σύγχρονα ρούχα, καθένας φορώντας ένα ρούχο ή περούκα του 18ου αιώνα, κάνοντας έτσι αναφορά στο γεγονός ότι έχουμε ερμηνεύσει το πρωτότυπο έργο στη σημερινή εποχή. Ο Καντίντ εμφανίζεται ως ένας απρόσεκτος αισιόδοξος και κάπως ιδεαλιστής, ωστόσο, κατά τη διάρκεια του ταξιδιού του, ο χαρακτήρας του ξεκινά την εσωτερική εξερεύνηση. Ο σύντροφος του Καντίντ κατά τη διάρκεια του ταξιδιού του είναι ο Δάσκαλος Pangloss, ένας φιλόσοφος, ο οποίος τάσσεται υπέρ της αισιοδοξίας, αλλά είναι γενικά ένας σκεπτικιστής. Η Cunegonde, με την οποία τόσο ο Candide όσο και ο Pangloss είναι ερωτευμένοι, είναι στην αρχή της ιστορίας μία αφελής, κακομαθημένη νεαρή γυναίκα από μια πλούσια οικογένεια.

Η ταινία είναι βασισμένη στο ομώνυμο ποίημα της Etta Streicher. Αναφέρεται στο να μην διατυπώνεις την άποψη σου, να παραμένεις ακίνητος ή καλύτερα να σφίγγεις τα δόντια και να φτάνεις στην εσωτερική ελευθερία. Μιλάει για το πώς μεμονωμένες νοητικές καταστάσεις επηρεάζουν τον κόσμο.

Ο Filip ζει σε μια φτωχή γειτονιά. Ονειρεύεται τη δόξα συγγραφέων και τον πολυτελή τρόπο ζωής σε ένα πιο εύπορο μέρος της πόλης. Μια μέρα χτυπάει η πόρτα του Filip. Η γειτόνισσά του Τερέζα, μια πρώην πόρνη που ο Filip προσπαθεί να αποφύγει με κάθε τρόπο, του ζητά να γράψει μια επιστολή για τον αρραβωνιαστικό της. Ο Filip συμφωνεί. Και όλα θα κατέληγαν μια χαρά, αν μια εβδομάδα αργότερα η Tereza δεν εμφανιζόταν στο κατώφλι του σπιτιού του και πάλι, ζητώντας του να γράψει μια απάντηση στην προηγούμενη επιστολή.

He studied in Graphic Art & Design and then embarked on a degree in Cinema studies and Cinematic techniques. 1992 was a turning point for Escalle who started as a digital film with his first piece,UNLIMITED MIRAGE (1st Prize Imagined 1992 Motion Graphics category). Then, he direct his first short-film in 1994, FROM THE SHIPWRECK about the tragedy of the raft of the MÉDUSE (1st Prize SCAM, 3rd Prize Art category with IMAGINA 94). After many visits to Japan, Escalle decided to dwell on Japanese culture and created THE TALE OF THE FLOATING WORLD. This short film, which was made of the stuff of dreams, won a raft of awards in some major world-class festivals ("GRAND PRIX" IMAGINA 2002 & preselection round at the 2003 CÉSARS (the French Academy awards). This film and his following video installation DRIPPING, GROUND ZERO approach Japanese history from a multiple viewpoint perspective to render the chaos of the Hiroshima bombing. A new work started in 2006, THE BOOK OF THE DEAD, A terrible and fatalist fable on the process of grieving, where silence, inner pain and body language are expressed through a contemporary choreography that highlight violence, agony and rebirth. Ever since... Escalle has carried research, into Visual Arts from differents countries and periods. Alain Escalle is always interested in working with professionals from other fields (dance, theatre). He's equally keen on further exploring and learn more experimental paths, be it in the field of cinema of animation for instance. His works are show on national TV channels Arte (a joint German/French channel), Canal + or France 3. He won many awards in international festivals (Festival du court métrage de Clermont-Ferrand, Festival du Nouveau Cinéma de Montréal, Imagina Monaco, le Niccograph au Japon, Ars Electronica en Autriche, les Monitors Awards à Los Angeles, Locarno, SCAM, etc...).

Δείπνο δια Ολίγους, Nassos Vakalis, (USA, 2014) 10' 07''

dinner-for-few-web
3D computer animation


Το "Dinner For Few" είναι μία δεκάλεπτη αλληγορική κοινωνικοπολιτική ταινία κινουμένων σχεδίων που καθρεφτίζει την προσπάθεια του ανθρώπου να επιβιώσει σε μια ιεραρχικά δομημένη κοινωνία. Κατά τη διάρκεια του Δείπνου, το σύστημα λειτουργεί σαν μια καλολαδωμένη μηχανή. Συνεχώς τροφοδοτεί τους λίγους που ανόητα καταναλώνουν όλους τους πόρους, ενώ άλλοι μόλις και καταφέρνουν να μαζέψουν ό,τι λιγοστό πέφτει από το τραπέζι. Αναπόφευκτα, όταν οι πόροι εξαντληθούν όλα οδηγούνται σε μια βίαιη και καταστροφική λύση. Δυστυχώς, το γέννημα αυτής της ριζικής και βαθιάς αλλαγής αποδεικνύεται ότι δεν είναι ένα σημάδι ελπίδας, αλλά η φτυστή εικόνα αυτού που το δημιούργησε.

ήρωά μας, που ξεφεύγει από εφιαλτικές καταστάσεις και καταλήγει σε ψυχεδελικές
στιγμές.
