Between Animation and Video - Hybrid Creative Processes | An Artist Meeting with Tal Kantor
The Department of Screen-Based Arts invites you to a screening and an in-depth lecture on the process of creating the award-winning animated film and winner of the Ophir Prize, 'Letter to Pig'.
The filmmaker, a lecturer in the Department of Screen-Based Arts, Tal Kantor ('In Other Words', 'Advocate') will tell about the complex and unconventional process of creating the film from an abstract idea to execution, and about the relationship between form and content with the unique technique she developed.
She will share the intricacies of an international production that travelled between two countries (France and Israel) for 4 years, and finally how all these elements connect to form a 15-minute animated film.
About the movie:
On Memorial Day, a Holocaust survivor reads a letter to the pig that saved his life. A young student who hears his testimony in her class sinks into a dark dream. In the depths of the subconscious, where the line between the animal and the human blurs, she faces great questions of identity, the transmission of collective trauma, and compassion.
