Lola the living potato

Leonid SHMELKOV

Animated short film [Russia]

The life of a little girl, Lola, who lives in an old house with her mother, baby brother, and a dog, is filled with imaginative plays with her deceased grandfather. But, one day, a stranger comes to her house and starts discussing buying the house with her mother. The work, with a drawing style reminiscent of paintings by Paul Gauguin, elaborately depicts how Lola parts the things she loves and is able to leave the house as she grows up a little. [17 min. 18 sec.]
