COLAHOLIC

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Marcin, who is 26, is a colaholic. The fizzy beverage accompanied him during his play as a child, when doing homework and at school breaks. Quite imperceptibly, drinking Coca-Cola became as natural for him as having lunch or going out for a walk. In the style of a cartoon, Marcin Podolec shows the feeling of emptiness after breaking the addiction, no different from longing for rejected love, which is why this documentary animation was made in the convention of a romantic comedy.
