'TraumA' in film
How can the theme of Triennial Bruges 2021: TraumA be seen in film? MOOOV dived into its archives and presents a selection of (short) films and series that reveal the blurred line between delusion and reality. They show the facade that is often maintained towards the outside world, ambitions and desires. Ironically, with these films, we also escape into a dream world, into an intimate setting, away from reality.
A boy’s belief in the Christmas spirit is revived when he boards a train bound for the North Pole on Christmas Eve. It takes him on a trip that teaches him that life’s miracles never fade away for those who truly believe in them. A wonderful animated adventure that takes us through the uncanny valley to meet Santa Claus.
