In closed isolated spaces I can be myself. There I don’t suffer from the projections of others onto my body and their readings of my mental state. I can inhabit other bodies and I can be wherever I’d like.


A girl finds a monster in the pigsty on the farm where she lives. The inability to domesticate or train the monster creates a relationship like one she’s never had before, challenging her perception of belonging and understanding.


Anthropomorphic princess Sophie and her maid Jessica prepare for a new day in the royal court. Sophie’s struggle to play her role propels the two protagonists forward and backward in time, through worlds and identities to find a way to live together.


A mouse finds herself reciting childhood memories in a sterile living room. Shards
of an alienating past paint the portrait of a human life. A sense of loss pervades the atmosphere as she’s torn between being human and being mouse, between being alive and being in a simulation.


A humanoid fox is locked inside the confession booth of the Big Brother Mansion, a room where contestants are invited to confess their secrets to the camera. The fox is seemingly drifting around with their eyes closed, vocalizing sounds, and exploring their internal being.

Bio: Philip Ullman is a Swedish artist and filmmaker, living and working in Amsterdam. By capturing human movements and voices and applying these to non-human characters within fictional, 3D-animated realities, they question the grounds on which value and sentience are prescribed, why one life is more valuable than another, and what it means to be human.
