A Family Is a Derivative of Listening

The art of listening between generations seems like an insurmountable task. As these five original films show, starting and keeping the family hearth burning is usually accompanied by moments of surprise, disillusionment and disappointment. But even if it isn't always easy, mutual understanding finally appears and the flame doesn't die. And that's what makes a family.

What I Dream About

The medium of animation is not the only thing these films have in common. To model or paint the moments that are stuck in our memory for some reason is also a great therapeutic tool. The filmmakers literally put things in motion through their work, and replay their wildest fantasies. But don't be mistaken, the heady glamour of the animating effects hides real human victories and failures, not anything from a toyshop.
