“An awesome, absurd animation, where things are mostly obscured”, one audience member said in 2014 of Réka Bucsi’s Symphony no. 42. The same definitely applies to her latest works, LOVE and Solar Walk, both of which are screening at Pluk.
While in Symphony no. 42, Bucsi created a forest full of animals behaving oddly, for LOVE she has animated a complete universe of unearthly life together: from smiling planets to marine creatures with islands on their back and whistling horses. Any time two creatures meet, something happens. And when the sun at the center of this universe grows or shrinks, that too has its unexpected consequences.
Officially, LOVE is Busci’s first independently-made film – Symphony no. 42 was her graduation project. The inspiration for this speechless short film came from the word ‘love’ itself – not just the associated meaning and emotions, but also the shapes of the letters themselves.
