SUMMARY: A man working in a light bulb factory in Buenos Aires formulates a plan to escape from the daily drudgery.

WHY IT’S HERE: Argentinian director Juan Pablo Zaramella’s ‘Luminaris’ is a charming, fantastical little comedy adventure which uses the little-used but always effective technique of pixilation brilliantly. Blending live-action actors and settings with animated objects and effects, ‘Luminaris’ is grippingly bizarre, mixing elements of Jules Verne adventure with surrealism and neo-realist romance. Although only 6 minutes long, ‘Luminaris’ lives up to its name by drawing the viewer into its small but delightful world through a whimsical silent-comedy style narrative.
