One of the enduring strengths of animation is the ability to express the inner worlds and obsessions of its filmmakers. This year, we’re taking a deep dive into these unusual creations, to celebrate the magnificently bold and the oddly brilliant. We’ve selected ten new films from six countries that amuse, surprise, and push the boundaries of animated film. From the colourful cosmos of Catgot, we journey through the disturbing recesses of Lursaguak: Scenes from Life, and finally plummet into the unimaginable weirdness of Wong Ping's Fables 2.
