Watch “Frills”, Garri Bardin’s Stunning Animation and Cannes Palme d’Or in… 1988
With 48h of video content uploaded on Youtube only, it’s becoming harder and harder to keep track of everything new worth watching, and that’s without mentioning archived videos. So I am always happy when a friend share his/her knowledge and helps expand my horizon.
I have been fortunate enough to be introduced to Russian Animator Garri Bardin‘s work over the weekend, and it has left me speechless.
Even more so when I learned most of the films I watched were made in the 80s.
The animation below is titled The Frills (in english) and won the Cannes Palme d’Or for understandable reason.
After finishing shooting a movie, Bardin was left with a roll of unused wire and decided to use it to tell a story that, 25 years later, seems extremely (disturbingly) current.
I was not only amazed by the story; the animation technique is flawless and very efficient.
