    Jona/Tomberry
    Holland
    No, not scared, yeah, right! Welcome to the twisted, hallucinatory and nightmarish subconscious mind of the one of a kind animator Rosto. The short film blends various techniques and narrative approaches to explore notions of reflection and repetition; opposites and duplicates; doppelgangers and alter egos. The short has won numerous awards including the Grand Prize at Cannes in 2005. The music is performed by Rosto's band "The Wreckers."
