SectionSHORT FILMS – discovering great Eastern European talents

A lucid animation and humorous story about the challenging and exciting life of a… cat sweater!


A cat tells us the unusual story of a sweater’s life, through which we hear of his early happy years, his adventures with a young hipster girl and a peaceful period living with a pensioner. The jumper falls in love again and again with his owners, but eventually he is disappointed in every one of them. In the end, he decides to remain single, but hope arises again when he meets another interesting person. This short animation by the talented Hungarian director Noemi Barkoczi had its international premiere at this year’s Sarajevo Film Festival.
