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.

Pre-film

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.
