Omer Ben David’s « For the remainder « is an atmospheric and vague, painterly animated short that envisions a view upon a dying old house cat who bids a farewell tour to his home. The outside strong rain shower and the heartbeat that follows up his strength slowly abandoning him create an most evocative atmosphere. The minimalistic drawing -just brushstrokes of watery paint- scan through the flesh of the animal to find its skeleton and brilliantly renders its former alter grace that has been replaced by this in-between life and death state. The last moments are touching.
The animation is a graduation film from Israeli Bezalel Art Academy.
