Country: Poand

Comprised of nine short films made by Polish female animators born between the 1970s and 1990s, ‘A Short Story of Women’ aims to shine a spotlight on various aspects of the female experience and emphasize the substantial role of women in the world of Polish animation compared to the last century and to show the colossal difference in subject matter and gender proportions since the times of the People's Republic of Poland. In their films, the women artists consciously choose to focus on topics strongly related to women's lives and the female body, as well as physiological and physical changes that occur in it during life (e.g. puberty, sexual experiences, pregnancy, aging). This contemporary wave of films made by women, after years of male dominance in the industry, offers a fresh new perspective on Polish animation.

The screening will be introduced by Katarzyna Surmacz, Organisational Director, International Film Festival Etiuda & Anima
