StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

Book presentation: Obsession. Perversion. Rebellion. Twisted Dreams of Central European Animation 

The collective volume consists of articles dedicated to the subversive and suppressed motis in auteur animated films from Visegrad countries and Italy. The papers, written by scholars from Poland, Czech Republic, Russia, Italy and China, outline the landscape of animated film, an art that engages both senses and intellect. The authors draw readers' attention to several issues, among them to the question of “powerlessness” of Polish animated satire; the resemblance between animated documentary medium of New Chinese School of Animation and contemporary Polish and Czech productions; the intertextual relationship between animated westerns and the live-action cinema of Sergio Leone and Sam Peckinpah; the artistic personalities of Jan Švankmajer, Zdzisław Kudła, and Alexander Sroczyński.

 


Predstavitev knjige: Obsesija. Perverzija. Upor. Sprijene sanje srednjeevropske animacije. 

 

Knjiga je zbirka člankov, posvečenih subverzivnim in zatiranim motivom v avtorskih animiranih filmih iz držav Višegrajske skupine in Italije. Članki, ki so jih napisali strokovnjaki s Poljske, Češke, Rusije, Italije in Kitajske, povzemajo pejsaž animiranega filma ‒ umetnosti, ki vključuje tako čute kot razum. Avtorji člankov bralčevo pozornost usmerjajo k različnim temam, med drugim tudi k vprašanju ''nemoči'' poljske animirane satire; k podobnosti med animiranim dokumentarnim medijem nove kitajske šole animacije in sodobnimi poljskimi in češkimi produkcijami; intertekstualnemu odnosu med animiranimi westerni in neanimirano kinematografijo Sergia Leona ter Sama Peckinpaha; umetniškim osebnostim Jana Švankmajerja,  ZdzisławaKudłe in Alexandra Sroczyńskija.
