Anima with Pieter de Poortere

When Pieter de Poortere creates the poster for a major event like next year’s Anima, the Brussels international festival for animated film, you know you’re in for a treat.

De Poortere opted to visualise the iconic Flagey building, which hosts the festival, almost completely submerged by the rising sea level. But don’t fear, this is not just a comment on the consequences of climate change, this is fun! His anti-hero Boerke looks on, rather fed up by the gulls that are defecating all over him, as other Brussels landmarks like the Atomium and the Media tower sink away in the background.

All the while sea creatures have a field day, flexing their muscles, having ice cream and enjoying a movie of their own. And have you tried to spot all references to animation classics?
