GRAND PRIX AT THE FESTIVAL IN STUTTGART FOR MARTA PAJEK
On May 5, ended the 24th edition of the Animated Film Festival in Stuttgart. The Grand Prix of the festival went to the film by Marta Pajek, "Impossible Figures and Other Stories II"
The protagonist of the film by Marta Pajek is a woman who stumbles and tumbles during everyday hustle and bustle. When she gets up, she discovers that her house has unexpected characteristics - it is built of paradoxes and filled with illusions. The film is the second part of the triptych "Impossible Figures and Other Stories," inspired by the concept of an impossible figure. Each part tells about striving for excellence and fulfilment in the reality full of traps.

its international première at 56th Krakow Film Festival, has been
