Synopsis

One morning a girl tries on a pair of new pants, yet they don’t quite fit her. More precisely, they are impossible to zip. The girl is bewildered. In the mirror she sees herself like the fattest piglet the world has seen. She decides to go on a strict diet as quickly as possible.

Our take

In this surreal and unexpectedly funny look at body image, Yelyzaveta Pysmak adopts jagged, fluctuating lines and comically exaggerated fantasy elements to capture the delirious distortions of dysmorphia. A tongue-in-cheek animation that doesn’t buckle under the weight of society’s expectations.
