‘Blind Vaysha’ , directed by Theodore Ushev, 2016 | Nominated for the 2017 Academy Award® for Best Animated Short Film

“This short film tells the story of Vaysha, a young girl born with one green eye and one brown eye. But colour isn’t the only thing that’s different about Vaysha’s gaze. While her left eye sees only the past; her right sees only the future. Like a terrible curse, Vaysha’s split vision prevents her from inhabiting the present. Blinded by what was and tormented by what will be, she remains trapped between two irreconcilable temporalities. “Blind Vaysha,” they called her.

In this metaphoric tale of timeless wisdom and beauty based on the eponymous short story by Georgi Gospodinov, filmmaker Theodore Ushev reminds us of the importance of keeping our sights on the present moment.” – NFB | National Film Board of Canada

I just love the look of this film, traditional lino-cut style. It’s so beautiful!  Read more about it on Cartoon Brew’s “Director Theodore Ushev on Bringing ‘Blind Vaysha’ to Life in Four Dimensions”!
