The Flood Is Coming (Switzerland) follows a forest hermit as he anxiously prepares for disaster in the woods. A paradise bird goes out of its way to find a mate for its Nest (Germany). Mr. Mare (Hungary) explores the surreal when a handsome man learns that there’s a tiny, plump man living inside his chest. Collective consciousness is pushed to its limits in the simple, tragicomic Rain (Poland). Sheep, Wolf and a Cup of Tea… (France) hypnotically details a family’s bedtime rituals as they prepare to pass into the world of dreams. Rendered with affecting animation, I Bleed (Brazil) is an intimate rumination on what it means to live with HIV. Intermission Expedition (Netherlands) finds hilarious tourists in an unfamiliar landscape as they struggle to come to terms with their new, volcanic surroundings. Hordes of children, giant bears, and images of burning houses come together one night in the stunningly-drawn And Then the Bear (France).
