Residency

  • Project Description

    Cosmopolitanism as an idea challenges us to think about a universal belonging that doesn’t confine itself to a city, region or national boundary. In an age in which xenophobia, nationalism and intolerance are a daily occurrence, we have grown accustomed to thinking of the world as divided among warring creeds and cultures, separated from one another by a chasm of incomprehension.

    The film Cosmopolitanism directed by Erik Gandini highlights the best intellectual arguments for this compelling vision through interviews with the world’s most prominent Cosmopolitanists including Kwame Anthony Appiah, Nikos Papastergiadis, Miyase Christensen and Kofi Annan. Portraying their words with the most stunning imagery by Academy Award shortlisted animators Michelle and Uri Kranot.

  • Project Description

    Our culture is based on stories. Stories make up our foundation. We can look at our lives as a story – our biography is our life story. Like the stories, some people are tragic and some are funny and some we do not understand at all.
    But what happens when these stories shouldn’t be told? Is it possible to let go of a story, to give it up? Is it possible to make a film about a girl whose only desire is to be rid of her story and to forget it for good?
    “Letting Go” is an animated documentary about a young girl who wants to let go of the shadows that haunt her past.

    “Letting Go” is financed by Estonian Film Institute, ANIDOX Residency and Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
    An  Estonian-Danish coproduction between Nukufilm, Silmviburlane and ANIDOX, the film would be ready for premiere in the autumn of 2017.
