The First Loss of My Life

Winner > Best Animated Film
The animation is a free adaptation of a story narrated by Dora Diamant, Franz Kafka’s last companion, who lived with him in Berlin for a few months. When the writer was taking a walk in the Berlin Botanical Garden, near the house where they lived, he encountered a girl who had lost her doll. The girl was crying over the loss and Kafka said that the doll had gone on a trip and was writing letters, which he was receiving. Kafka then went on to meet the girl in the Botanical Garden to read the letters. This lasted for a few weeks until the girl accepted the loss. In the film, the Big Puppet of the Carnival of Olinda, a traditional carnival character, participates in the finale.
