Entities: Objects and Lines

The Entities thematic section series aims to demonstrate the diversity and variability of ways to depict objects, creatures and people in animated film. Despite the number of characteristic features of such depictions being reduced to a minimum, viewers can still identify them. Each section is dedicated to a different entity and offers various ways to use the vast potential of animation, an art form that is characterized by unlimited imagery and openness to viewers’ fantasy.
