Filip lives in a poor neighbourhood. He dreams of writer’s glory and luxurious lifestyle in a more prosperous part of town. One day Filip gets a knock on the door. His neighbour Tereza, an older prostitute that Filip tries to avoid by all means, asks him to write a letter for her fiancé. Filip agrees. And it would all end up fine if a week later Tereza would not show up at his doorstep again, asking him to write an answer to the previous letter.

Have a look: Hunger (Petra Zlonoga)

Everything that is alive is hungry; seed is hungry for light, bird is hungry for flight, man is hungry for the touch of another. The seed of longing grows into what feeds us.

Have a look: „Playtime“ von Steven Woloshen (2010)

Steven Woloshen schrieb:

„I created „Playtime“ in 2010 as part of The Toronto Animated Image Society’s funded project to bring the Group 11 Painters alive with animation. My film was an homage to the life and art of Jock MacDonald. This film was created with paint and decayed frames of Hollywood trailers glued directly onto the surface of 35 mm film strips.
The creation process is detailed in my latest filmmaking manual, „Scratch, Crackle & Pop!“ ( scratchatopia.wordpress.com )“
