Всё наоборот
Flipped

Year: 2018
Country: Egypt, UK
Director: Hend Esmat, Lamiaa Diab
Genre: animation, short
Язык:
Runtime: 5 min.
FLIPPED explores the absurdity of a world where the roles of kids and adults are switched. The story follows a day full of bizarrely reversed interactions, unravelling the dynamics of this relationship. The kids are challenged to deal with the big size difference and unpredictable nature of the childish adults, while adults gain back kids’ qualities, let go of all responsibilities and become children once again. The movie tackles maturity and parenting in a comic way. Whether it is seen from a parent’s perspective or from the child’s, the audience is left with thoughts about the nature of this relationship and how the roles inevitably change throughout the course of our lives.

Is this a serious avant-garde film for an art audience or an entertaining animation film accessible for a larger audience ?   Definitely it shifts between several categories:  between life action and animation (single frame editing); between serious formal interest in the film image and a humorous approach to it; etween language and music (language is transformed into music); between conceptual planning and playful experimentation; between Intellect and emotion.
