SHORTS 4:

SPEECHLESS

Before language, humans communicated in a myriad of visual signals.

These carefully selected animated short films in competition are masterpieces of visual storytelling, to be enjoyed in any language. From a Stranger Things-style portrait of childhood and illness, to a punky Garden of Eden escape story, these films will enchant and immerse you, delight and enlighten you, all without saying a word.
