Full Circle

Nominated for Best Animated Film

Director: Yeow Su Xian (Shu)

11' • Singapore • 2021 • English

Full Circle is an animated short film that presents the Moon and Earth’s relationship through a narrative medium. It journeys through a sleepless night, conquering the semi-conscious moonlit world and the retrospective nature of the night. The personal stories of twenty experts and enthusiasts in astronomical fields construct the narrative and its landscapes — coffee tables, paper planes, corridors, among other things. This anecdotal format seeks to present science through the eyes of humanity, prompting the audience to experience scientific information through the familiar mundanity of life. The humanistic vision of science acts as a launchpad for curiosity and allows the audience to access science through their own experiential libraries.

The Swap

Directors: Chloé Dumond & Ananda Henry-Biabaud

11' • France • 2021 • French

Sonia, 40 years old, single, decides to exchange sperme for a thesis correction in order to have a child.


Nominated for Best Documentary Short

Director: Andrea Schramm

21' • Germany • 2021 • German

On the first day of the Corona lockdown, the director's father is picked up by an ambulance. He dies shortly thereafter. Mother and daughter mourn in the parental apartment, isolated on 49 square meters — and connected to the outside world only by telephone. With painful intimacy, these phone calls exemplify the loneliness of the mourners in pandemic times. Photographic images of the desolate apartment are marked by an intense geometric strictness, which, in spite of the confinement, also creates a certain distance to the inevitable. “27 STEPS" thus leaves room for interpretation and deals with a universal question: How does isolation affect us when we are dependent on solace and help?

Primal Therapy

19' • Finland • 2021 • Finnish

A middle-aged man on the verge of a burnout seeks new energy through a very special form of self help therapy.
