1 2

6. Nought

Nought is surreal and eerie in every way possible and allows the viewer to gain and insight into that world which is created by one’s imagination and the instability which comes along with it. The film is laced with factors that are obviously insane but apart from that, it is extremely well made and worth a watch.


7. The Black Dog’s Progress

The Black Dog’s Progress is about a dog and his tale (pun not intended). He helps us understand his plight and misery that is inflicted by his abusive owners. The movie is shown with the help of a flip book and hence, is very different and captivating.


8. The Cat Piano

This animated film is dark and makes use of themes that are dream-like and fall under the category of fantasy. The Cat Piano is stylish and practically oozing with panache even though the plot is slightly odd. It kicks off when the musicians of a town vanish into thin air.


9. Ratrix Hero

This film won an award at a French film festival. It is an animation which belongs to the genre of both comedy and action. It borrows a portion from the Matrix, changes it and re-tells it. Ratrix Hero is hilarious in its own way and has been appreciated by many critics all over the world.


10. The Life and Death of a Pumpkin

This bizarre film recounts the tale of a Halloween story but from a Pumpkin’s point of view. It is quite unusual to watch the world through a pumpkin’s ‘eyes’ but it obviously worked for the director as the film managed to bag a number of awards.
