LIAF 2022: International Competition 5. Into the Dark. 18

Screened in partnership with London International Animation Festival
Various, Various, 2021/2022, 90m.

Welcome to our annual deep-dive into the dark heart of animation. Here you will find films featuring a vampiric female spirit with luminous internal organs hanging from her neck, an

extremely anxious woman reliving her past traumas through therapy and a startling depiction of celebrated author Will Self’s story about a family man, high on morphine, struggling to come to terms with his life. Step in, take a seat, turn out the light and get ready for our annual showcase of all manner of dark, creepy, violent and spooky films.
