Inside me

Inside me

Winner – German Short Film Award for Best Animation 2019

Best Animation (zweiB Award)
Filmschoolfest Munich
Jury statement: INSIDE ME creates a small universe with wonderful and poetic animations that interact with a very strong voice-over in an unexpected way. An uncomfortable subject is treated with grace and sensitivity in all its many facets, with no fear of unconfessed feelings or thoughts. Maria Trigo Teixeira ably leads us on an intimate but universal journey.

Best direction (BLIT Award) – Take One! Competition
Curtas Vila do Conde – International Film Festival, Portugal, 2019

Jury statement: A delicate theme, treated with frontality and in an attractive manner, without ever renouncing to humour and sensibility, with an honest and compact end result.

3rd Prize
Ermanno Olmi Award, Italy, 2019

Jury statement: For the fluidity of style, synthesis of content and writing that describe with great immediacy the dramatic experience of a difficult choice.
