Superbia
(Superbia)

animation, digital, 15 minutes

co-produced with: Czech Republic

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2016.

The native people of the surrealistic land of Superbia, where men and women form separate societies, face the changes sparked by the first equal couple in their history.

In a colourful and profuse world, a continuous dream-like and symbolic quarrel, Luca Tóth lightly and lavishly blows the stereotypes of the traditional genre to pieces. The 2D animation, both formally singular and aesthetically achieved, plunges the spectator in a huge, surreal fountain of youth. It brilliantly states the evocative power of this cinematographic style, capable of telling the world and its contradictions both accurately and humorously, but with no didactical intent, whatsoever.
