Antagonistas Antagonists

14’ animated short film by Paulo D’Alva


“Antagonists” takes place in a limbo between reality, dream, imagination and abstraction. Between heaven and hell. But it arises from seven real-life situation case studies. A neuro-psychoanalyst and seven patients with seven brain damages to illustrate the human being’s seven virtues. “Antagonists” is a paradoxical shifting area where all so-called normal thoughts can be reversed, where sickness can be good health and normality a disease. It’s the kingdom of the absurd, of human condition, a way of looking into the mirror to know who we are and what is our role regarding the other.
