Who is Who in Mycology
Marie Dvorackova, CZ/USA 2016, 15´
A worthy winner of the 1917 Student Oscar, Who is Who in Mycology is an exquisite quirky tale about a young trombone player who spends an adventurous night with a bottle of wine, an unconscious girl, a crooked bookcase and rapidly growing mould, which was specially developed for the film by scientists of the Czech Academy of Science and digitally enhanced.



-------------------------------------

The Tree
Lucie Sunkova, CZ/F 2015, 15´
A paint-on-glass animated story draws a parallel between the lives of trees and people and serves as a parable about parenthood, relationships, apparent hopelessness, and the promise of happiness.

With only one clue to help him along the way, a small house journeys to the big city in search of the family who left him behind.
