BEST ANIMATION AWARD
HIM END HER
by Nathalie Lamb – Germany
For the sophisticated balance among stop-motion animation, superb acting and cinema mastery. The way objects turn into characters reminds the wonder of the early cinema animation and it is a reference to the literal meaning of the word “to animate”: to give an “anima” [Italian for soul] to “inanimated” things.
