Kill It and Leave This Town

Play trailer

Mariusz Wilczynski / PL, 2020 / 88 min.

A man who has lost his loved ones withdraws into his memories, where they are still alive. Wilczynski spent fourteen years working on this city of memories, drawn in a pretty sparse, sketchbook style that puts this across all the more truthfully. A really unique horror animation, by turns startlingly beautiful and tender, grim and dark.

poster Kill It and Leave This Town (Mariusz Wilczynski, PL 2020)

A man escapes reality after losing his loved ones, withdrawing into his memories. Here, time stands still and his loved ones are still alive. Over the years, a whole city grows up in his memories.


Before Kill It and Leave This Town, you will see the short pre-film Hate For Sale (2017) from the Eye collection. This short film (3') by Anna Eijsbouts brings Neil Gaiman's poem 'Hate for Sale' to life in a special animation.

This film will also be released in national cinemas by Eye Filmmuseum.

Previously Unreleased

Screened at prominent national and international festivals, yet never released in Dutch cinemas. Quite unjustly so, Eye Filmmuseum thinks, and so it has once again brought an exceptional selection of films from international festivals to the Netherlands.
