the life of one, a chain of irreversible events begins. Relationships fall apart along with the
very world around them.

Director – Réka Anna Szakály

I was born in 1995. I graduated as an animation director from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. I spent my childhood in a factory town which ended up being my biggest inspiration for my works. The huge empty abandoned buildings and spaces where characters get lost and reflect on themself. My main interest is to show personal relationships through movements and the environment.
