Everybody is different.
Children’s fantasy is endless!
We can catch their thoughts while they’re playing.
The basic inspiration for MATCHES was given by an interview with a 7 year old child, who shares with us his honest and innocent thoughts.
Finding joy and wonder in playing with colorful matchsticks the young boy’s imagination becomes visible, while he complains about grownup rules and talks about his dreams, fears and hopes. The film attempts to take us back to the innocent fantasy world, where endless and wonderful imagination comes to life.
The film depicts a special way of thinking, gives a glimpse into a very personal world and delivers a highly creative and playful animation style with a simplest gesture by bringing some pieces of colored matchsticks to life.
