Impossible Figures and Other Stories II

Marta Pajek
Figury niemożliwe i inne historie II
Poland 2016 / 14’

A certain woman, constantly harried in a search for perfection filled with all its traps, constantly trips and falls. When she gets up, she discovers her house has unexpected powers – it is built of paradoxes and filled with illusions. This is a brief animated film inspired by the concept of an impossible figure that may be drawn in accordance with the principles of perspective, but cannot be built.
