On The Cusp, Longlist - Animation

Kai, A little too much

Martina Scarpelli

In an imaginary space a woman lets go of herself and overcomes fearing her own greatness. She discovers her body, she embraces her emotions, and learns to own all the parts that make her HER.

I am an Italian film maker based in Denmark. I have a BA in Fine Art from Accademy of Brera in Milan, and a BA in Animation from Experimental Center of Cinematography in Turin. I am former alumni of Animation sans Frontiers, Anidox:Lab, Anidox:Residency, and former Open Workshop resident. My short film Egg was awarded with a crystal for first film at Annecy, a Golden Dove at Dok Leipzig, Golden Horseman at Filmfest Dresden, among many others, and was nominated for best short film at the European Animation Awards 2018 and shortlisted for the 2020 Cesar Award.
