LA COURSE À L'ABÎME- Georges Schwizgebel

"The Ride to the Abyss"... Two riders on galloping horses disappear and reappear, alternating with other animated images moving to the same rhythm... What I like the most is the fact the whole animation is happening on one canvas... All scenes are painted in circular order but it`s hard to notice that till the end.

Georges Schwizgebel has directed 15 animated films during the last three decades, while also creating theatre sets, designing murals and participating in numerous exhibitions. His films reveal a plastic universe, one that surprises us with its efficient and economical use of lines while demonstrating a real sense of animated motion - all this accompanied by surprising musical twists and turns. 

Animated and Directed by Georges Schwizgebel
Music: "La Damnation de Faust", by Hector Berloiz

EVERY CHILD- Derek Lamb, Eugene Fedorenko

To commemorate the declaration of the UNICEF about the rights about the child, this film illustrates the theme "Every child has the right for a name and nationality when born." There is even a reminder at the end of the film for the viewer to support UNICEF.
This animated short tells the story of a child rejected of every home, then found by two tramps who give her love and tenderness.
This is a film without words, incorporating sounds by Les Mîmes Électriques (The Electric Mimes).
