Polish Animation | O!PLA Across Borders
Join us for a special screening, free to ASIFA and SIGGRAPH members
O!PLA Across The Borders includes winners from this year’s O!PLA Festival of Polish Animation — an exceptional sampling of contemporary films from the land of fields. This new collection includes independent work, student films, music videos, and animated epigrams. Presented by ASIFA Portland and Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH. O!PLA Across The Borders 2014 describes a Kafka-esque city where beetle people struggle to coexist with normal; a famous surrealist painting brought to life with stunning, stylized CG animation; a Polish-flavored version of The Matrix, where domestic routines are all part of the malevolent computer’s master plan.
