Wavelengths and Tales from the Art World @ MIAF

Melbourne International Animation Festival's It’s A Mad, Mad Pannonia World screening packs in a collection of hallucinogenic chronicles of decadence, irreverent visual analysis of social mores or insightful fever dreams of life in Hungary through the eyes of the artists who created them in the country's iconic Pannonia Film Studio. The screening - which will take place on 23 July 2021 - features "Wavelengths" and "Tales from the Art World" by Gyorgy Kovasznai. The Pannonia Studio has a fascinating history. Formed in 1951 in communist era Hungary, it produced hundreds of animated shorts and more than 20 animated features – including the “Son Of White Mare” by Marcell Jankovics and Gyorgy Kovasznai's "Bubble Bath". The animated shorts being made at Pannonia were absolutely unlike anything else being made in communist Eastern Europe. Some of them seemed to offer a surprisingly sharp social commentary and many of them burst with a colourful and psychedelic or surrealist energy.
