URBAN / URBANOS (16 min)

RATING – 4.5 stars

Brazilian entry URBAN is a hard hitting portrayal of the turmoil inside and out of a big metropolitan city. Clocking just over quarter of an hour, the script ties society’s burning issues into a cohesive narrative with a single thread: violence – against children, women, gays and everyone that can be pinned down, humiliated and even shot at blank point, with no to little cause.

FUNDO (9 min)

RATING – 4.25 stars

This short animation tells a achingly beautiful and horrendous, at the same time, story of a plastic bag.

PAYBACK IS A BITCH / UN CHIEN DE MA CHIENNE (12 min)

 RATING – 3.75 stars

This dark French dramedy shows us difficult journey from fear to love, isolation to acceptance and betrayal to retribution.

THE POINT / DER SPRINGENDE PUNKT (4 min)

The transformation of publishing is told from the point of view of a dot and how it came to become a pixel.

FIRSTBORN /ECHORA (13 min)

RATING – 3.75 stars

This Israeli short tells the story of a young woman who has transformed her life and has accepted to live with the consequences. But the past  doesn’t want to let her go.

DONT FEAR DEATH (4 min)

RATING: 4.25 stars

This tongue-in-cheek animation is not only quick on pacing but has a fast & sharp narrative to tell. Putting a different spin on the fear of death and tying it to our daily routine life in a refreshing fashion, is masterful writing.

IN BETWEEN LAYERS (16 min)

RATING: 4 stars

The personality tests in glossy cover magazine that try to reveal something, anything gets a refreshing and experimental treatment. This short takes the dark topic of Candy From A Stranger, depicts why we all from time to time do make terrible decisions in life and then do it all over again.

THE BIKE (9 min)

RATING: 4.25 stars

Economic crisis, joblessness, pollution and immigration are center stage in this Italian short. With only two fully developed characters and a tight script the film makers show much more and urge the audience to think.

  1. we prefer to honor several other net weisbtes on the web, even if they arenÂ’t linked to us, by linking to them. Under are some webpages really worth checking out

  2. Interesting. Then I guess the SSD got much smaller, probably a laptop version, since it’s 125GB vs the 250GB SSD I have in the 2 current iMacs. I’ll investigate that further. Thanks for the info!
