Ob železnici 8
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.

Mouth(s)/ Usta / Bouche(s)

Mathieu Girard

An ever hungry mouth gives birth to a man in an empty room. An encounter with a piece of meat will propel him into unsuspected oral areas through a series of visual and audio experiences.

V prazni sobi vedno lačna usta rodijo moškega. Srečanje s kosom mesa ga bo izstrelilo v neslutena ustna območja skozi serijo vidnih in slušnih izkustev.
