Scent of City

France / Greece, 1994 (MIFF 1996, Animation)

Director: Georges Sifianos

One of many similar rooms in a big city is a home to a woman and a cat. They live in isolation, prisoners of the environment and the prevailing urban culture. Their release is found in their imagination and a cinematic magic carpet. (RP)
