editing: Jens Julich

language: German

A thin thread of a tale about those heavy mornings when the mind and the body want to wander on in the depths of the dreamed abstraction while the reality starts to force itself in a more and more brutal way and snatches the dreamer from the arms of Morpheus.

The Train of Thought is an anti-thesis of Daniel Szczechura’s Journey. While in the classic Polish animation nothing happened, in the picture by Leo Bridle and Ben Thomas almost too much is happening. Not only as far as the plot is concerned but also in the area of various animation techniques used by the authors.

Currently he is living in Great Britain, where he works as an independent director and animator.

Umowną i symboliczną warstwę animowaną filmu Françoise dopełnia pozakadrowy, drżący głos narratora, który dzieli się bolesną historią gwałtu na kilkuletniej dziewczynce. Dysonans między kolorowym rysunkiem i dramatycznym wyznaniem jeszcze bardziej potęguje wrażenie, jakie na widzu robi ta opowieść.

Elsa Duhamel

Studentka École des Métiers du Cinéma d’Animation. Jej krótkomterażowy debiut Françoise pokazywany był na wielu uznanych międzynarodowych festiwalach animacji i krótkiego metrażu (m.in. International Short Film Festival Clermont-Ferrand).

An animated super-production in the short version. In the Pest(s) a whole mini-world of mini-people is living with their homes, every-day appliances, cars, and remains unnoticed by normal-sized people, who ruthlessly take a vacuum cleaner and annihilate the parallel universe…


The members of the group create visual works using the latest achievements in the world of animation. They use both 2D and 3D techniques. An example of their application is the film entitled Pest(s).

The Gloaming
France 2010 / 14’
director: NoBrain
screenplay: Niko
cinematography: Quentin Rosan
editing: Niko, Grégoire Sivan
animation: Sabotage, Belanim
sales: Auteur de Minuit
awards: Festival International de cinema d’animation de Meknes 2011 – Special Jury Award
language: no dialogues
colouration: colour

The Gloaming, a production of the NoBrain group, is close to The Fallen Art by Tomek Bagiński owing to its sense of humor and additionally to its anti-military character. In comparison with the Polish young classic the French animation stresses spectacular momentum and dynamics.


NoBrain is a collective of four French directors who work together since 2001. Sylvain, Sébastien, Charles and Niko came from the postproduction area: Sébastien and Sylvain are specialized in compositing, Charles in 3D and Niko in postproduction supervision. NoBrain was created in 2001 as an independent structure for postproduction. The Gloaming is their first short film.

language: no dialogues
colouration: colour

Belenky’s ambiguous cut-out gains additional areas of meaning in our country. The crash of the passengers of an airplane shown here automatically brings about associations with the tragedy of 2010. The analysis of human behaviors, which was certainly the starting point for realization of the production gets completed in our country with input exceeding the intentions of the film’s authors.
