Marona’s Fantastic Tales
Marona, born the runt of a litter of nine, looks back on her life and the lives she passed through as the loyal dog of several owners – including a small girl and a street acrobat. Anca Damian’s film combines bit- tersweet pathos with an exquisite visual aesthetic, developed in collaboration with Belgian artist Brecht Evens. Marona’s col- ourful world becomes abstract in playfully expressionistic ways: rooms disintegrate and characters’ contours dance along their bod- ies. The result is an enthralling dance be- tween vivid style and the melancholic tone of the story.
