Justyna Mytnik
Poland 2016 / 14’

Mauri and Zuzia live in a building subsumed by a plague of pigeons. One day, a bird hatches on their balcony and talks the pair into looking each other in the eyes or else they will die from a contagious virus. Zuzia attempts to protect herself from the threat of death but the boy refuses to believe in something so absurd; he hates birds and intends to get rid of them all. A dark fairy tale about loneliness, with a somewhat surreal style.
