PRODUCED BY: Rotem Yarakchi

Anna O is a young mother, who suffers from a phobia of water. Even the tiniest drop can turn into a flood which will separate her from her baby. Anna can’t distinguish between fantasy and reality, which in turn makes her feel overwhelmed with her own mind. Rotem Yarakchi paints an intimate picture with the typical aesthetics of Bezalel. His animation is filled with anxiety and a slightly spiritual atmosphere.
