“IMPOSSIBLE FIGURES AND OTHER STORIES I” WINS IN LITHUANIA
Marta Pajek's latest film won the short film competition at the Vilnius International Film Festival in Lithuania.
The Vilnius International Film Festival is the largest and most recognisable film festival in Lithuania. It was founded 27 years ago and has since become an integral part of the country's cultural map. This year, the festival started on 24 March and ended on 3 April.
Marta Pajek's animated film won the short film competition. The awarded film is set in a world right after a big bang. Only a few seniors are left alive in a deserted city. The protagonist of the film, an old woman, walks the streets of the empty city with difficulty. She is surrounded by facades of empty houses with geometrically divided planes, monuments that reminiscent of past victories that are now completely meaningless and dead mannequins in store windows. The memories of those who will never come back to the city come back in short flashes. The first part of Marta Pajek's triptych is a post-apocalyptic vision of the world in which man and his existence mean no more than a fraction of a second. Marta Pajek's triptych is based on the concept of impossible figures. Impossible Figures and Other Stories I was produced by Animoon.
