What will happen if we give ourselves the will and disregard the role imposed by society? If the weight of your imaginary duties before the imaginary "them" lifts off your shoulders for a bit? Why not try it? We promise you will enjoy it. This year KISFF is experimenting with the well-known Out & Proud program and offers you to immerse in the magic world of queer animation.

Entropia

Flóra Anna Buda

Hungary / 2018, 10 min

Three women, three lives in parallel worlds, until the moment a fly causes a bug in the system. The universe collapses, sex is in the air, bras are overrated and the stars twinkle! In the animated film Entropia by Hungarian artist Flóra Anna Buda, colours explode and sensually unleash new possibilities: Thanks to the fly, all that is abstract comes to life and sexuality plays an integral role.
