Dog's Field

Poland2020animated12'National Competition

When an elderly woman unexpectedly falls to the floor, her pets are left on their own. Two dogs, a cat and a bird have to fend for themselves, which gets more and more difficult when food becomes scarce. In this animated, yet highly realistic picture, an animal instinct is confronted with attachment to a human being. Black contours of frames, not filled with any colour, look like an unfinished sketch, like the protagonist’s life which suddenly ends somewhere between walking the dogs and feeding the cat.
