THE ONE WHO KNOWS
by Eglė Davidavičė
2D animation, 12', No dialogues
Ūla is a 17-year-old who loves to swim. One morning in the changing room, a towel slips off her hips and a group of synchronised swimmers sees a birth mark on her thigh. This event embarrasses Ūla and she tries to avoid the swimmers in every possible way. Although the girl feels safe in the water, thoughts of her imperfect body do not leave her, and the tension increases. It is only when she unexpectedly enters the space of her fantasy that Ūla begins to move towards self- acceptance, overcomes her fears and grows up.
