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.

I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did and will make you want to discover more of Bardin’s work. (The Conflict is another short I recommend to the non-russian speakers.)
