Maribor, Upravna enota Maribor, 2000

StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

Mary and 7 dwarfs

Lina Dvoršak


Mary and 7 Dwarfs/ Maria ja 7 pöialpoissi/ Marija in 7 palčkov
Riho Unt (Nukufilm)
2018, EST, 12'30''

Having spent her entire life behind the convent walls, old and dignified nun Maria has decided to fulfill her childhood dream. The only obstacle on her way is her fragmentary, almost non-existent memory. Maria is afraid that her ultimate dream may turn out to be a sin instead.

Dostojanstvena stara nuna, ki je vse življenje preživela za zidovi samostana, se odloči uresničiti svoje otroške sanje. Pri tem jo ovira njen razdrobljen, skoraj neobstoječ spomin. Marija se boji, da se bodo njene ultimativne sanje izkazale za greh.
