Animation injects a dose of magic into the everyday, in this programme that brings together award-winning shorts.
If the artists in this programme (a few of them Flatpack regulars) keep perfecting their art, their sense of wonder and inventiveness certainly remains intact. Daisy Jacobs continues to explore family issues and life-size animation in The Full Story, Niki Lindroth Von Bär confirms her reign over puppet animation in the wonderful musical The Burden and the prolific Réka Bucsi presents her cosmic odyssey Solar Walk. Completing the picture is the beautiful Negative Space, which recently earned an Oscar nomination.
