Dir. Mariusz Wilczynski | 2020, 88min

Mariusz Wilczynski’s deeply personal, hand-drawn animated film—winner of the Grand Prize for Feature Animation at the Ottawa International Animation Festival and a FIPRESCI Award at the 2020 Viennale—conjures a flood of emotions through surreal and striking images. Fleeing from despair after losing those dearest to him, the film's hero hides in a safe land of memories where time stands still and those dear to him are still alive. Over the years, a city grows in his imagination, filled with cartoon idols from his childhood, until the hero discovers that eternal youth does not exist and decides to journey back to the real world.

Presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York and co-programmed by Tomek Smolarski
