For all things possible
Elisabeth Belliveau Quebec Canada, 2 min
This is a short animation, made by drawing with black plasticine on graph paper. It is shot frame by frame, and accompanied by the song “boxcar” written and sung by Rae Spoon. This animation begins simply with two women on a bus, as the bus passes through, things begin to transform braiding landscape, animals and people. This animation explores the interconnectedness of things and the way moments and daydreams imply all things possible. Love loss and longing and general directions.

On The Road

The characters shown in the film are JŪzef and Basia — a homeless married couple. It depicts their journey through Poland in search of a home they could call their own. In this documentary ‘road movie’ they meet different people who might help them find their own place. It turns out it is not the house that really counts for them, but the very fact that they are together. So long as they are together there is hope they can still make it.
