Animation can take far greater liberties than live-action film, via its unfettered visual imagination and unique ability to explore and portray statesof desire, sexual fantasies and realities, unconscious and subjective experience.
From humour to provocation, realism to surrealism, the intimate confessional to cutting-edge social comment, via fable, metaphor, myth and comic observation, this selection of animated films from international festival award-winners offers a series of very different perspectives on the extraordinary range of desire and sexuality in human relationships.
