Fantoche Baden 2021, starting with Réka Bucsi
«Am I searching for poetry in animation films?»
This was Giuseppe Di Salvatore’s question while exploring the 2021 edition of the International Animation Film Festival Fantoche in Baden. The masterclass with the Hungarian main guest of the festival, Réka Bucsi, provided him with the main topics for reflection on animation films.
Abstraction, minimalism, cosmic isolation, fragility, the ambivalence of playfulness and violence, the children/adults misunderstanding, the role of animals, self-explanation, opacity and the haiku attraction… there are just some of the ingredients of FILMEXPLORER’s journey into animation.
