TIFF 2016: Blind Vaysha Review

Short Cuts

Based on a philosophical short story by Bulgarian writer Georgi Gospodinov, Blind Vaysha tells the tale of a young girl born with one eye only able to see the past, and the other only able to see the future. This split vision is brought to sometimes eerie life by Theodore Ushev’s intricate digital linocuts, a technique that mixes past and present technologies to create an apt pairing with the short’s theme of the importance of appreciating the present. Continuing the long tradition of groundbreaking animated work produced by the National Film Board of Canada, it’s an affecting appeal to the audience to live in the here and now.
