Guida – by Rosana Urbes

Beauty of life is ageless.

10 – 15 | 2015 | Animation | Brazil | Retro | Romance

Guida has dedicated her life working as an archivist, her days, for thirty years, are marked by an unabashed routine. The usual home/work rhythms are interrupted just by her dreams and resume with sound alarm. Days, months and years are always the same until the moment Guida sees a newspaper ad about life drawing classes in a cultural center…

Guida is the delicate animated short film directed by Brazilian artist Rosana Urbes. Each frame is rigorously hand-drawn and colored with watercolors, if you put in pause the video player can realize that each frame and every still are much closer to a pictorial artwork that to a film.

Music, drawings, animation and story are combined to make a visual poetry. There’s no age to appreciate the beauty and potential of life if we can recognize the beauty in ourselves. Years are not a limit, as often we think, signs of aging could be a piece of art. At a time when women and men look for the aesthetic perfection or apply surgery to hide the signs of old age, Rosana Urbes gives us a new and fascinating perspective.

The short has been  Winner: “Traditional Animation” at World Animation Celebration 2014.
