My Galactic Twin Galaction by Sasha Svirsky at Berlinale Shorts 2020

One of the three animation shorts competing (find them here),  the 7-minute new film by Russian animator Sasha Svirsky talks about "good and evil, utopia and dystopia, narrative and post narrative collide in a mortal battle for fun to public"

As the director himself tells to Zippy Frames:

We had fun when we were making the film and didn't expected Berlinale selection at all. Would be cool if audience will have fun watching it - Sasha Svirsky
