YANNIG WILLMANN (FR): GHAFLA [05:08 min, 2007]
Definition: giving oneself up to gadfly distractions.
Thus: a changeable person, one not to be trusted.
The film is the fruit of the continued collaboration between Filmmaker Yannig Willmann and Composer Isambard Khroustaliov (a.k.a. Sam Britton).
AWARDS: best of PrixArs Animation, Ars Electronica, Linz, 2007
