Festival Favorites il Luster productions celebrated their birthday last week, so we’ll give them some time in the spotlight and show you Jorka

Two years ago we screened this beautiful short in our Dutch competition at the festival, and after touring some more festivals it’s online now for your viewing pleasure. In Jorka, Michiel Wesselius tells us the story of the people who are left behind when they lose a loved one. We pass by all the different people who had a relationship to the person who died, and we watch how each one of them deals with this event. What for an effect does this have on your normal life?

A heavy story to tell, but because of the great animation, pacing and atmosphere of the film, he really succeeds in creating a believable and relatable world. So sit back for 8 minutes and enjoy Jorka.
