Opening Night

Sara Szymańska

Poland
2023, 12'

He’s an actor and this is his opening night. She came to see him, thinking she’d say goodbye before leaving town. Between them, there’s still the love that sustained their relationship until it couldn’t, and now they’re dealing with the broken fragments of their hearts as best they can. 

Sara Szymańska brings us an animation of drawings and cut-outs that tells us a universal story: the end of a love. This is a dive into the aftermath of something extremely intimate and only understood by two people, in a professional party environment, where more glances realise the ruins of a world that this couple built and is now crumbling. Intimately animated and sensibly written, Szymańska impels us to open our hearts to these characters. (Ana Cabral Martins)
