Artifacts of you, Artifacts of me
Director: Brecht De Cock
In a reconstruction of his father’s death, the director combines animation, live action and photogrammetry, among other techniques. This intensely personal film deals with the universal topic of loss in a way that shows the power of contemporary artist animation and pushes the medium to its limits.
Directed by Brecht De Cock.
Accompanied by a haunting soundtrack, composed by Ismaël Iken (Kiche).
