The title of the film refers to, on the one hand, the tradition of numbering subsequent graphic prints, and on the other, the fact that the movie sequence was drawn on “25 frames per second”. Each subsequent drawing looks similar to the previous one, like copies of the same pattern; in fact, they are only different in the details. Their meaning is conveyed only through motion.
Each drawing consists of a huge number of micro-actions that can be viewed infinite times, searching for the new sound and image interaction. So a looped sequence that lasts only one second, can extend to an unlimited length, depending on the viewer’s perception.
The soundtrack is a combination of field recording (mainly, our private home audio-sphere) and electronic sounds produced with a Synthi AKS synthesizer.
It is recommended to watch this movie with headphones or proper stereo sound system.

Jury’s statement: “Animated with only 25 drawings, this film is literally a playground for abstract narration. By exploring its limitations, it develops joyful multiple stories that are complemented by both, diegetic and abstract sounds”
