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.

The Act of Breathing / Akt dihanja
Hana Yamazaki
2018, HUN, 6'47''


The concept of the film is based on the physical and emotional behaviour of breathing. This vital living function is manifested in an artificial and yet organic material, plastic, as well as in a human body. The film questions physical existence and movements as dance on screen, through the metamorphosis of a body.

Koncept filma sloni na fizičnem in čustvenem izvajanju dihanja. Ta ključna življenjska funkcija je prikazana z umetnim, a vendar organskim materialom, plastiko, pa tudi s človeškim telesom. Film raziskuje fizični obstoj in gibe kot ples na zaslonu, skozi metamorfozo telesa.
