Foregin Body

Marta Magnuska
Ciało obce
Poland 2016 / 7’

An alien body has its own life. You will not get rid of it, it is with you forever, you need it. Caress your alien body, do not try to shave its long abrasive coat. A short animated story about that which seems totally alien, but is the closest thing we have; about close encounters and contrasts, but also about transformation, of the external and internal kind.

Agata Bratek
