Theodore Ushev, an animator of our time

Screening in presence of the filmmaker



Monographic program on Theodore Ushev, with the presence of the filmmaker himself.

One of our leading contemporary animators takes us on a journey where personal memory converges with painting, literature, politics, music, graphic design and documentary in striking images. Where else could we see the Spanish poet, Federico García Lorca, together with the Balkan musician Kottarashky, the aesthetic of Soviet posters with Kafka, and reminiscences of Miró, Calder and Kandinsky with Georgi Gospodinov? Eastern and Western Europe are digested with passion and poetry in a constant exercise of pure cinema.
