A traveling road-show of (duh) nine shorts from nine countries that gets points for both style and content.

Out of the nine shorts included here, only four prove to be particularly memorable and only one of that group is a perfect marriage of form and content.

A series of 9 short films that mostly impress with stylish animation, clever concepts, poignancy and, at times, a sense of humor. The best film among the bunch is FLATLIFE.
