Bobo's metamorphoses, Daria Kopiec (POLAND 2015, 16’ 04”)


The film "Bobo's Metamorphoses" tells the story of a boy turned into a fly as punishment for his laziness. On his way, he meets a spider. As they talk, he realizes that even the tiniest being has a role to perform. The world seen from the perspective of a little flying creature is completely different than the world viewed with the eyes of a boy [edited by festival team].
