IN SOLIDARITY WITH UKRAINE
Anibar presents its first collaboration with Linoleum Contemporary Animation and Media Art Festival.
On our 13th edition of the festival, we will be screening a 40 minutes program in support of our Ukrainian artists. Art has no boundaries and as such it should not be silenced. During these hard times we are humbled to stand with and help our partners, artists and friends from Ukraine by offering them space to show their work on this edition of the festival.
Special Program: UKRAINIAN ANIMATION – “BEFORE THE WAR”
THE SURROGATE by Stas Santimov
6 minus 3 seconds
Curator: Anastasiya Verlinska
Synopsis: A man destroys the nest of an unknown creepy creature. But it’s not the most horrible creature he will meet tonight.
THE RESPONSIBLE HERO by Roman Lysenko
4 minutes 53 seconds
Synopsis: A tragicomedy about a rescue attempt and its consequences based and inspired mostly by cheesy yet charming Superman movies from the 70-80s. It is a simple straightforward story with a cheerful and a little bit nostalgic atmosphere contrasted by a grimm and sudden twist.
DEEP WATER by Anna Dudko
Synopsis: A lonely chubby mermaid is keen on peeking at people through the water pipelines using magic. One day she falls in love with a man and, blinded by passion, comes into his apartment to satisfy her burning desires.
PAPER OR PLASTIC by Nata Metlukh
7 minutes 39 seconds
Synopsis: An immigrant comes to a first-world country to paint a mural on the tallest tower. He tries to adapt to the new reality, but xenophobia and odd rules force him to go back.
DEEP LOVE by Mykyta Lyskov
Deep love has finally happened in Ukraine
FROM UKRAINE TO KOSOVO
During the Festival, our guests enjoyed a performance from Ukrainian artist Neither Famous Nor Rich (NFNR) on our collective support for Ukraine.
In addition, we have launched an emergency support initiative for the cultural community of Linoleum. The initiatives’ main goal is to provide them with immediate financial support for their Festival.
LINOLEUM International Contemporary Animation and Media Art Festival is the biggest showcase of short independent animation in Ukraine. Launched in 2014 in Kyiv each year the festival screens around 250 films from all over the world, offers workshops and lectures held by the field’s best players and a special program for children. LINOLEUM aims to support animation artists and promote Ukrainian animation worldwide as well as encourage and celebrate creativity among animators and media artists.
Due to Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine, LINOLEUM has been unable to gather the necessary funds to organize their 9th edition of the festival in Kyiv this fall. To make LINOLEUM happen one more time, they need our financial support.
We plead to everyone reading this to donate and help our Ukrainian friends make their festival happen.
