Synopsis


Blind Vaysha doesn’t see the present. She was born with a left eye that only sees the past and a right eye that only sees the future. This story is a metaphor for our struggle to live in the moment; how we seek comfort in memories of the past or in hope brought on by the future.

Theodore Ushev


Theodore Ushev (1968, Kyustendil, Bulgaria) graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia and began his career as a poster artist in his native country. In 1999 he settled in Montreal, where he quickly acquired a reputation as a prolific and talented animator owing to such films as The Man Who Waited (2006) and Tzaritza (2006). In 2006, he began work on an acclaimed trilogy on the relationship between art and power: Tower Bawher (2006), Drux Flux (2008) and Gloria Victoria (2013). His acclaimed shorts include Lipsett Diaries (2010), his best-known film and a 16-time award winner, Nightingales in December (2011) and Apart (2012).
