The Trick is a short film written by Nada Alic and animated by Andrea Nakhla. With a humorous tone, the two authors have created a cartoon that is intended as a tool for “surviving” life’s difficulties. The theme of anxiety is very present in their respective works, and this short film is designed as a self-defense and self-care tool. Thick, colourful lines, simplified characters, the film’s minimalist aesthetics recall children’s felt drawings, producing a soothing effect on the viewer, although the film speaks of situations of anxiety known to all.
