Bartek Kulas
Poland 2010 / 7’

The inspiration and the narrative axis of this animation is Nick Cave’s psychedelic ballad The Curse of Millhaven – here, in the hypnotising interpretation of Katarzyna Groniec. It presents a macabre, at times surreal, story of a fifteen-year-old named Loretta. Dullness of the life in a provincial and grey town of Millhaven inspires the girl to a murderous dance. After all, as the protagonist herself innocently sings: “You do not know the day and the hour...”.
