LIAF 2011 International Programme 1 gets another airing at Animax Festival, Macedonia.
‘White Hair’ (Yuka Takeda, 2010)
The sudden discovery of a single white hair triggers an episode of obsession and denial.
‘Secret Bee ‘ (Gina Kamentsky, 2010)
Venturing toward the sweet honey-spot where representation and surface push and pull each other like a two-headed llama.
‘The Smaller Room’ (Cristobal Leon & Nina Wehrle, 2009)
In a room there is a box. In the box there is a forest. In the forest there is a lost child. A place where living beings appear … and vanish.
‘Gallery’ (Robert Proch, 2010)
The eye of an artist, the hand of a calligrapher and the imagination of an animator all combine in this wonderfully imagined study in perspective-bending, shape-changing, black and white, moving image.
‘Dry Fish’ (Andy Martin, 2010)
A wondrous cascade of cool creatures, crazy colours and bewildering scenarios. Two minutes of pure fun.
‘Nachtspel’ (Ben Gijsemans & Nicolas Keppens, 2010)
The mysteries that emerge when the lights go dim and a new world takes over.
‘The Undertaker And The Dog ‘ (Shin Hashimoto, 2010)

Japan, 3′ 54
‘Get Real!’ (Evert de Beijer, 2010)
An utterly unique visual experience! A boy, compelled to score the love of a mega-queen in a violent computer game, loses his grip on reality until he tastes a real kiss.
‘The Origin Of Creatures’ (Floris Kaayk, 2010)
In this dark parable of a post-catastrophic world, a colony of mutilated limbs emerges in an ultimately doomed attempt to create a new form of randomly co-operative beings.
‘The Twin Girls of Sunset Street’ (Marc Riba & Anna Solanas, 2010)
Ointments, elixirs and poultices. Enriqueta and Ramoneta will attend your needs with discretion and reserve at Sunset St No 17A, Barcelona.
‘To Swallow A Toad’ (Jurgis Krasons, 2010)
It’s The Rounds vs The Squares. The Squares can deal with The Rounds cutting their ears off all the time ‘cause they can swallow toads, but at some point toad addiction looms.
‘Amar’ (Isabel Herguera, 2010)
A visit to an Indian mental institution reminds Ines of the last days she spent with her friend Amar.
