Award of Merit – “Vertebrae – Sacrum” (Italy)
Title: Vertebrae – Sacrum
Runtime: 12 min
Director: Martino Prendini
Placement: Award of Merit
Competition: December, 2021
Synopsis: Third animated film of “Vertabrae” series
by Martino Prendini
This series was born from the need to communicate something intimate through my means alone.
Animation, writing, music, voiceover, all managed by me, with my limitations, trying to involve the viewer in a personal glimpse.
Vertebrae thus develops into individual short films, each representing a part of the spine, in an exploration of myself and my way of confronting myself.
From Axis, the second Vertebra, the meridian points directly to Sacrum: a curvature that falls into visceral aspects so tremendously alive and necessary. An impetus to go beyond oneself.
