Cargo, dir. Jasmine Ellis, Germany 2017

The rough and ready look of the film embodies the meticulously planned and executed method of its creation.

I Award (4 000 PLN)

Shadow Animals is a skillfully wrought short film in which dance is an integral part. The movement is perfectly judged to create an uncanny world in which the protagonist has to negotiate a terrifying evening.
