Hungarian animation director Flóra Anna Buda presents online her Berlinale-awarded film, Entropia.

Three women, three lives in parallel worlds, until the moment a fly causes a bug in the system. The universe collapses, sex is in the air, bras are overrated and the stars twinkle! Entropia, the graduation film from animation director Flóra Anna Buda world premiered at the 2018 Berlin Film Festival. Produced by the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) and its animation department, the film won the Teddy Award for Best Short Film that year.

Watch Entropia:

An excerpt about  Flóra Anna Buda and Entropia from our 21 Emerging Women Animation Directors to Watch for 2021 article.

She managed to have a Teddy Award at Berlinale with her student film Entropia, and she meticulously weaves the world of female identity and sexuality. Even with its triptych of characters, Entropia feels in essence like the first part of a series portraits; all of them navigating (but never completing) a track between natural affinities and cultural insensitivities. Flóra Anna Buda has a knack for saturated colours and freewheeling designs and movements, and a sense of editing that constantly alerts you. She now prepares her 27 short, writing another chapter on her woman character’s fascinating  process of self-discovery. -Vassilis Kroustallis
