Drop by Drop Short Film

"I was born here and here I am." I am always looking forward to discovering animated short films of any kind, and this one from Portugal is mesmerizing in many ways. Drop by Drop is a Portuguese animated short film co-directed by Alexandra Ramires (Xá) and Laura Gonçalves. It originally premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in the Directors' Fortnight sidebar and after years of playing around the festival circuit it's finally available to watch online. This is a hybrid documentary + animated short film, telling the story of an actual town. The last habitants of a village refuse to let themselves sink into oblivion. In a world where the idea of progress appears to be above all, this home floats. To see more of her animation: Elo is the latest project from director Alexandra Ramires. Drop by Drop is not only an intriguing exploration of what keeps people stuck in their small towns, the animation is also intriguing - it's so surreal and unconventional.
