What It Feels Like

2018/3’/United Kingdom

Director Steven Fraser

A short animated documentary that investigates voice hearing. 


2018/4’/South Korea, Czech Republic

Director Yeaeun Jang

The story follows a point of view of the God or inanimate beings, and by that it shows a human life with a third party perspective. Life has a limitation that nothing exists forever, but we, human, live as if we live forever. Perhaps it is because we never know when is the ending scene of our lives. As being afraid of that fact personally, I wanted to illustrate about that we all, human beings, experience very similar things repeatedly in life.

Stranger in the City


Director Himanshu Kamble
