Best Film, Ouchy Film Awards, 2018
Combining both stop motion animation and live action, The Wake tells the story of the changing events in the life of a young woman, Tina, who seeks to restore order to her world. She undertakes a journey, and her world slowly transforms.
Shot in Wales and Mexico, award winning animator Gustavo Arteaga’s The Wakeis a remarkable work that explores narrative structure, as well as the medium of animation and its relation to live action narrative, with an occasionally surreal sense of wonder. A beautifully realised film that finds a lyrical visual poetry in the world and poignantly describes the events that define our experiences of it.
