The Visit

Poland2021animated7'National Competition

Among the noise of barking dogs, shouting hunters and sounds of gunshots there is a running, terrified chimpanzee. When she looks back, she sees a tropical forest on fire. Finally, quite exhausted, she reaches an abandoned colonial villa. Something totally unexpected is waiting for her inside it. A suspenseful animation about a human impact on nature showing how the world of people intertwines with the world of animals. What is the difference between the two worlds? When are you still an animal? And do you become a person?
