Our mini animation festival kicks off today at 11 am with the screening of ‘Tired of Swimming’ by Anna Eijsbout. Described as the story of an old man torn between the lingering presence of his dead wife, a fish in a jar and the reality of his lonely exitence, the stop motion animation is a haunting and beautiful experience.
The screening will take place at Terrace, next door to MadLab.
