Seen at the world premiere in a sold-out little Haga 2, GIFF 2020, with animator-director-professor Rastko Ciric present to introduce the work.
The rewards of Mephistopheles.
Wholly digital, with dozens of prominent artifacts of the raster-graphics drawing process. More cleanup would have been nice. Midhat Ajanovic, the film-studies PhD who introduced Ciric, interpreted the film to be about the origins of animation in Lichtspielhallen, before the medium of film was invented. It is a nice meditation on that tradition, as well as the unboxing-style first-person POV.
