This is the second part of a collection of great short films and cartoons united by one common trait: black humour. Among them is a work by the famous animator and winner of both the Oscar and Palme d’Or Bill Plimpton and a sharp satire uncovering and exploring Santa’s flirtation with politics and greed. “Godwin’s Law” is the story of the up-and-coming prime minister of Quebec, Joseph, who learns that he is the grandson of Adolf Hitler. We will also be screening one Russian work: “Unintentionally” (“Nechayanno”), the dark yet heart-warming comedy by Zhora Kryzhovnikov, which was awarded Best Short Film at the Kinotavr festival in 2014 with almost the entire cast from his wedding comedy hit “Gorko!”
