Short Film: DANA GAVANSKI – I TALK TO THE WIND, 5min., Italy, Animation/Music Video

A traditional hand drawn frame per frame animated music video for dana Gavanski’s cover of I talk to the wind (original by King Crimson). Using a purely analog technique, the director and animator (one woman crew), wanted to recreate a 70s vibe that could match the voice of the artist, hence the pastel pink to accompany a black and white palette, the film like effect (entirely hand drawn) and the dissolving passages. The lyrics has a surreal element to it, that the director chose to underline through the use of nature as a symbol for the tidy chaos given by the juxtaposition of inside/outside and here/there. The whole video wants to reproduce the back-and-forth movement of the wind and it is, by all means, a loop.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
