Red Light Train

Poland | 2019 | animated | 10 min. National competition

Snowflakes are falling slowly, there is a couple in love and a passionate kiss – a young stewardess witnesses similar farewell scenes every day. The situation is the same inside the train: both the couples who have been together for a long time and fleeting lovers demonstrate their feelings for each other without restraint. Observing others, the woman tries to dampen her own loneliness. Will another journey change her life? A melancholy animation about the need of love in the atmosphere of the 19th century Paris, old cinema and red lanterns of Asia.
