Farewell / Slovo

a puppet stop-motion animated film directed by Leon Vidmar | 2016 | 5’51” | Slovenia

Lovro is tired and sad. He fills the bathtub with water, looking at droplets dripping from the tap. As one hits the water surface, Lovro is reminded of the day he first went fishing with his grandpa. His thoughts take him to the fish pond, and the bathroom sounds and objects bring back memories of that day: putting a black worm on the hook, getting tangled in his grandpa’s line, driving to the pond in a beaten old car, catching a fish for the first time and seeing it die. Memory and reality merge into one.
