From among multi-million video library of the Vimeo platform, only a few titles have been chosen, which have a chance to win the title of the best film of the last 12 months. The curators of the Vimeo Festival & Awards had a very difficult task of selecting only a couple of productions, which went to the 10 final categories. One of them includes also a Polish film.
“Acid Rain” by Tomek Popakul was recognised as one of the 10 best animated films of the passing year. The nominated animated film is set somewhere in Eastern Europe. Młoda runs away from home, as far away from the grey reality as possible. The initial excitement of the hitch-hiking journey subsides when she ends up on the outskirts of the city in the middle of the night. On the bridge, she notices a figure dangerously balancing on the railing. This is how she meets Chudy, a little bit unbalanced freak. Chudy lives in a recreational vehicle which he drives in order to attend to his not necessarily legal errands. Młoda decides to join Chudy. Their road together takes them to increasingly strange regions, and an unnamed bond quickly forms between them. Animoon is responsible for the production of the film.
