Strange Fruit

Shimi Asresay & Hili Noy Graduation short film from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.

The peaceful daily routine of father and son is interrupted by an encounter of an unfamiliar boy, different from them in color. An allegory to the phenomena of racism as an acquired cultural epidemic, the story discusses the question of the personal conscience of each of us, versus the education we receive from our families and environment. Can we really insist on our personal belief system, when what we must believe in, is dictated to us?

The film presents how easily we acquire fear and hatred of foreigners, as well as how easily we might become the “strangers” and “others” ourselves.

Directors: Shimi Asresay & Hili Noy.
Original Soundtrack: Itai Argaman • Sound Effects: Ohad Zrihen.

Each Other

Written & Directed & Animation: Lee kyu-tae.

Tant de Forêts Trailer // Burcu & Geoffrey

Trailer of Burcu & Geoffrey`s short film based on a poem of Jacques Prévert “Tant de forêts”.

The poem speaks of the irony of the fact that newspapers warn us about deforestation although they are made of paper themselves.

Orman: The idea was to create different scenes of nature, one leading to another, each time with a little trigger, and without any cut.

Like a Lantern was created using methods of paper cut-out replacement animation and pressure printing on a Vandercook letterpress.
