Intimate Animation: Andreas Hykade (‘Ring of Fire’)

// Featured, Interviews


iaep6This week sees the conclusion of the first season of Intimate Animation, the podcast in which we explore, discuss and interview the talents behind animations (old and new) that deal with themes of love, relationships and sexuality.

 

In episode 6 we meet Andreas Hykade, whose filmography includes the multi-award-winning shorts The Runt (2005), Love and Theft (2010) and Nuggets (2015) as well as the children’s series Tom, produced in association with esteemed German studio Film Bilder. Prominently discussed in this episode is the director’s intense and hallucinatory Western opus Ring of Fire (2000), whose themes of relationships, sexuality and conflict were drawn from his own life. The film would go on to win Best Animated Short at several major festivals including that year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival.

Also discussed in this episode – the threat of tightening UK censorship laws on depictions of ‘non-conventional’ sexuality, Studio Pupil‘s delightful short Tabook and the bizarrely compelling visuals of Genital Jousting from Free Lives.
