THE GREAT MALAISE is the winner of the 2020 CIFF Best Animated Short Film Award.

A young woman describes herself, offering a self-portrait in the most favourable light possible, giving us what we want to hear. The visual narrative tells an entirely different story; with heartbreaking power, it reveals the burden of anxiety she bears as a competitive overachiever striving for happiness. Funny and touching, THE GREAT MALAISE is above all a deeply human film.
