One of Many

Macedonia | 2019 | animated | 11 min. Short film competition

Macedonia, as a stop in the Balkan migration trail, is a direct witness to the suffering of thousands of people. “One of Many” shows a love story taking place in the background of the refugee crisis. Dread, fear and pain are presented in this animation via visual metaphors and abstract images, which makes the story more poetic and brutality less literal. Dark colours, expressionist aesthetics and doomsday-like scenes imprint the film in the viewers' memory.
