I Know You’re Afraid Too

Poland2023animated13'Konkurs polski (2023)

A woman is afraid of a big black bird she keeps in her flat locked in a cage. The bird terrifies her but she is unable to get rid of it. She decides to take it to the Office of Weights and Measures to have it measured. Maybe someone can take its dimensions and catalogue it so that it will be easier to tame it. Unfortunately, the clerk has no idea how to help her. Hovering over the border between the absurd and grotesque, the animation shows our hidden fears, loneliness and cages we create for ourselves. The film was dubbed by two eminent Polish actors, Anna Dymna and Andrzej Chyra.
