Anna O is a young mother, who suffers from a phobia of water. Even the tiniest drop can turn into a flood which will separate her from her baby. Anna can’t distinguish between fantasy and reality, which in turn makes her feel overwhelmed with her own mind. Rotem Yarakchi paints an intimate picture with the typical aesthetics of Bezalel. His animation is filled with anxiety and a slightly spiritual atmosphere.
Graduated from the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Works as an animator since 2011. “Anna O” is her diploma animation for which she received awards at such festivals as the Cyprus International Film Festival or ASIAGRAPH CG Art Gallery.
