DON'T LOSE YOUR HEAD

POLISH TITLE: NIE TRAĆ GŁOWY

REPRESENTED BY KFF

“Don’t Lose Your Head” – a short animation using drawing and 2D techniques. It is a visual story about how easy it is to lose one’s head.  A white head rolls slowly towards the centre of a black screen. One event triggers an avalanche of others. The visual side of the film develops with the film narration.  Starting from simple compositions through successive number of layouts and density of forms up to the final scenes full of colours like in a kaleidoscope. An abundance of thoughts, relations and connections leads to a tragic ending.
