An innovative, Pan European project that connects women animators and composers in the crafting of new work. Twenty artists were asked by Klangforum Wien and Tricky Women to consider our current economic system in light of the Economy for the Common Good social movement. The films reflect on various aspects of this movement – its opportunities and challenges, and its theory and practice.

Here are the resulting ten animations that explore themes of consumption, greed, solidarity, equality, responsibility, and revolt. They consider how the machine we operate within can be destroyed and rebuilt.

Ranging from the abstract and experimental, to fairy tales, documentary approaches, and the satirising of society, this collection brings together an incredible variety of voices and techniques.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A led by Producer Abigail Addison with Austrian animators Eni Brandner and Susi Jirkuff, and British animators Elizabeth Hobbs and Samantha Moore about the collaborative process and the themes of the films.
