KIWI & STRIT (KIWI OG STRIT)

Esben Toft Jacobsen

Denmark, 2016 / 45 min / Without words / Animation

Furry and funny!

Kiwi and Strit live in a clearing, deep in the woods. Kiwi is yellow, meticulous and caring whereas Strit is purple, dirty and wild. In the forest that goes on as far as anyone knows, they visit great places like the really big tree, the tallest mountain or the wet waterfall. They are really curious so they want to try anything. They play football, take baths and do painting. But it often turns wrong because they are too busy laughing together!

"There's something raw and unpolished about Nordic nature and the Nordic drawing tradition; it's scratchy and painterly." Esben Toft Jacobsen, director
