  17. Mex and the animals 08:22
  18. Canada 2020
    Directed by: Elisa Gleize
    Screenplay: Elisa Gleize
    Production/School: Elisa Gleize
    Dialogue language: French

    Mex and the animals could be the title of a children's book. How does a person grow up without animals? What imaginary world will we construct around them, and from what? The story is narrated by Mex, a melancholy cyborg who wanders through virtual space among images of different animals. These creatures are no more than rough virtual reconstructions of those that have long since disappeared, visibly still dominated and commodified. Mex's quest raises anthropological questions through a fictional story set in an unknown time. It belongs to a common fantasy world fuelled by eco-anxiety and portrays a 'post-animal' epoch through an individual who is nostalgic for these absent bodies.

  19. Lèvres bleues 08:18
  20. Canada 2020
    Directed by: Philippe Hamelin

    In making Lèvres bleues, Philippe Hamelin was interested in using computer-generated imagery as a reconstructive tool - in this case using it to reconstruct a lover's memory. The story comes from a collection of accounts told by strangers who the artist met on dating sites in 2008. The memory takes form through matter, objects, movement and the senses. In the animation, human mechanisms and machinery are placed in parallel while the apparatus of narrative mechanics are explored. There is a crossover between the human being's interior movement (its feelings) and its movement in space. The dramatic expectations too often linked to representations of love between two men are derailed.
