The films highlight the topics of climate protection, biodiversity, the environment, and sustainability in visually powerful and sharp-witted animations and encourage critical contemplation in both humorous and serious ways. In the winning film “Pig”, director Jorn Leeuwerink reflects on the climate crisis with black humour and a tragic-comic tone. He succeeds in wrapping a threatening issue in playful-looking images and presenting it in the form of a seemingly harmless fable.
In “Mondo Domino”, filmmaker Suki, inspired by slapstick comedies and the cartoons of Tex Avery, reveals in unbridled rhythmic images and delirious colours all the madness of the human species, which over-exploits, over-consumes and lives in a world that goes to hell unchecked.
