IC 02 International Competition 02 - Animated 2 - Searching for Sense


Searching for Sense presents animations that place their respective protagonists before a challenge and simultaneously test the viewer. A body is found, and everyone feels guilty of the murder; a woman undertakes a journey carrying her head under her arm; and a man delivers a mysterious package. Whether emotional mother-daughter relationship or exciting action trip—nothing in these films is as it seems.
