"SUZANNE PORTRAIT" THE BEST ANIMATION IN GREECE
Izabela Plucińska's animation was recognized as the best international animation of the 43rd edition of the Drama Greek Short Film Festival in Greece.
Drama Greek Short Film Festival was founded in 1978 on the initiative of Drama Film Club. The first edition of the festival was enthusiastically received, so it was decided to continue this initiative. From the very beginning, the festival presents short films from all over the world. In addition to the shows, exhibitions, seminars, lectures, concerts and theater performances are also an important point of the program.
This year's festival program featured as many as four Polish productions. The fictional "Something" by Kasia Babicz, the animated "My Fat Arse And I" by Yelyzaveta Pysmak and the winning "Portrait of Suzanne" by Izabela Plucińska competed for the awards. In the competition section, you could see Jola Bańkowska's "Story".
The action of the award-winning film takes place in a small hotel where a man tries to stifle his hunger for love by eating excessively. The longing for his beloved Suzanne will not be soothed by plates full of meats, vegetables and fruit. When the protagonist goes to the city in search of food, he accidentally injures his left foot, which unexpectedly transforms into Suzanne. From now on, they can be inseparable ... But this is only the beginning of a surreal story about loneliness, jealousy and love. A grotesque adaptation of Roland Topor's short story made of plasticine, where every detail is enchanting.
