The ESCAPE (Ucieczka), directed by Jaroslaw Konopka (POLAND)
This stop motion animation was a part of a Short Film Competition at Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2017.
A woman and a child – two people saved by the remembrance. An apocalyptic annihilation has happened in their world. Afterimages of those traumatic events interfere the perception of reality.
Woman and child are haunted by a constant sense of insecurity and danger. The surrounding world gives them no chance for the survival.
Main characters exist, but as if they were dead. They meet, but they can’t see each other. They only live in those blurred by the time images of human memory.
