Moonfishing by David Michael Friend

A short puppet film by David Michael Friend; part of Heather Henson’s “Handmade Puppet Dreams” series.

A fisherman’s hobby of sculpting is interrupted when he must perform his monthly task of illuminating the town he lives in. With container on back, fishing pole in hand, and his current carving stashed in his pocket, the lonely soul goes searching for the perfect spot to catch the moon’s shimmering sister. But his shattered hope for exchanging his catch for the villager’s fellowship returns him to his art for companionship.

Chinti by Natalia Mirzoyan

The shore on which little ant lives is a narrow slip of ground all filled with trash embound by a wall from one side and a river from the other. Little ant tries to fit into the strict daily routine of the ant family, but finds it really hard for him.

The main character’s world changes greatly when he finds a small piece of paper – a ticket with the picture of Taj Mahal. Ant falls in love with the gorgeous architecture of this building. He understands that it exists somewhere, but it is very far away. So, having no idea of the actual size of the building, the ant decides to construct the same building on his own shore, and make it look exactly the same as the original.

The film is made of different types of tea leaves • Directed & animated by Natalia Mirzoyan.

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.
