Synopsis: A skinny and quirky water drop named Philly is born in a cloud over Denmark. He lands and comes to life among other droplets. Philly meets the girl drop Lilly and together they explore their materiality. As the sun reappears the drops are confronted with the fact that the rain cannot last forever. Fear spreads. But Philly’s naive and curious personality makes him different than the other drops. Together he and Lilly set out to confront their destiny and find out what happens when they step out into the sun. In an imaginative universe animation director Karsten Kjærulf-Hoop brings hand-painted watercolor figures to life and tells a life-affirming story about the cycle of life.
My Auntie’s Tales (Min mosters historier)
Dir. Tone Mygind Rostbøll
Synopsis: Six-year-old Theodor has been allowed to accompany his aunt on her travels at sea. She is first mate aboard an incredible sailing ship whose mast is as tall as the Round Tower in Copenhagen. Theodor’s maternal aunt, who goes by the name of Lola, has sailed the seven seas for as long as she can remember. She can tie knots, raise the sails and climb all the way up the ship’s highest mast. She is also a master storyteller. Every day is a new adventure, whether Theodor finds a letter in a bottle, catches fresh provisions or joins the hunt for the great white whale, Moby Dick. But have no fear – with Lola at his side and her wondrous tales, Theodor is ready to overcome every challenge the oceans can throw at him – in true shipmate style.
