The world-class works of Hungarian animated films have impressed viewers until now. Still, the latest work, “Plastic Sky”, which will soon debut at the Berlin International Film Festival, will increase the reputation of Hungarian animated films even further. Like Ruben Brandt, the collector, the work is a special sci-fi genre piece that presents well-known domestic locations and actors in a futuristic, animated version. The new trailer can be seen below, showcasing the stunning visuals and story.
The story takes place in post-apocalyptic 2123 in Hungary, where plants and animals no longer exist due to human damage to the environment, and people live under huge plastic domes to survive. Everyone gets an implant, a seed that turns the host’s body into a tree over time, providing oxygen and food. Stefan and Nóra, a married couple, live in this system, but Nóra decides to turn into a tree, which Stefan cannot bear and rebels against the system to save his love.
The Plastic Sky was written and directed by Tibor Bánóczki and Sarolta Szabó, and the main roles are played by Tamás Keresztes, Zsófia Szamosi, Judit Schell, Géza D. Hegedűs, István Znamenák, Zsolt Nagy, Márton Patkós and Renátó Olasz. The film was made using the rotoscope technique, which Walt Disney already uses.
