Swallow The Universe
Begründung der Jury
A film like a trip: multilayered and complex, the award-winning film explodes across the screen as a creative storm. Using elements of the Japanese fable world, various stylistic devices such as ink drawings, tattoo motifs and underground mangas, the film builds a visually exuberant tableau that blends provocation, symbolism and mythology into a excitingly offbeat hallucinatory ride. Firmly rooted in the tradition of outsider art, the filmmaker presents a furious tour de force in which humans and the animal kingdom clash for an apocalyptic showdown.
