It is that crazy and that animated, you can hardly find words to describe it… let’s forget all these usual “the best”, “exclusive”, “unique”, “the first”, “don’t miss” and so on… This year 13 animation movies will be presented in the section, including movies from Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, Hungary, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Estonia, France and Ukraine. Be sure, these are by far not the cartoons we used to watch as children! But is it possible to describe the actual madness? You can only go through it! We leave all written reflexions to writers, as we are not people of letters. Speaking about visual art, there is no point in wasting time reading common words! We invite all the crazy connoisseurs of animation, who want to check the new type of therapy and laugh.
