At the recently finished 14th Vienna Shorts Festival, the jury award went to Marta Pajek.
"Impossible Figures and Other Stories II" is the second part of the triptych based on the idea of impossible figures, that is, figures which can be drawn, but whose existence in reality is impossible. The animated series by the author is a statement on the role of women defined in three dimensions - starting from the most intimate one - such as home and family to the wider social context.
