After Slovakia's independence 12 years ago, came a wave of creatively dynamic, sometimes cryptic and sometimes humorous films from this small but vibrant nation. Orbiting around the renowned VSMU, the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Bratislava have been many films that have gained world-wide attention. OIAF jury member Michal Struss' film In the Box, is a typical example of this new wave of animation examining the themes of entrapment and frustration while poking fun at the human condition. This amazing, thought provoking programme will shed light on these little seen films.
