Blogs ANIMATOR INTERNATIONAL ANIMATED FILM FESTIVAL IS THE PERFECT MIX OF FILM AND MUSIC 11 – 17 July, 2014 Poznan, Poland

ANIMATOR International Animated Film Festival in Poznan, Poland is a festival with a strong focus on live performance as well as the normal fare of short and feature length animation as well as workshops and panel discussions. This year’s Animator Festival offered several really challenging works in their six shirt film competition programs.

I was completely repulsed after I saw Polish animator Piotr Dumala’s film Hipopotamy but I couldn’t stop thinking about it.  The film starts off calmly with a group of faceless naked women and children bathing in a river.  They are being secretly observed by a group of men.  A naked man approaches a woman with a child in her arms who rejects his advances.  So begins a brutal and at the same time beautifully graceful “dance” of naked bodies reflected in the water.  The title of the film was inspired by the behaviour of hippopotami, which are very aggressive animals.
