THE LITTLE MOLLY AND THE HEDGEHOG | Zdeněk Miler | Czech Republic | 1970 | 10′

JUSTE UN PETIT PEU | Björk Jaworski Alicja | Sweden | 2011 | 9 ‘

A story from a Slavic fairy tale originally told from the point of view of the peasants. Here the points of view are reversed, giving a glimpse of what goes on underground while gently addressing themes of possession, collaboration and betrayal.
