Director's Biography:

Tibor Bánóczki Sarolta Szabó

Tibor Bánóczki and Sarolta Szabó, the multi-award winning writer and director duo known for their mysterious and often bizarre worlds. They have created critically successful animated shorts such as Les Conquérants, which was part of the official programme of Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier in 2012 and was competing at the 2013 César Awards for Best Animated Film. Their animated short, Leftover, won the ACSE Equality and Diversity Award at Clermont-Ferrand International Short FF in 2015 and was nominated for Best Animated Film at the César Awards in 2016, and has since been presented at over 40 festivals around the world. White Plastic Sky is their animated feature debut.


In the near future – 2123, there are no more animals or plants on Earth and the remaining humans are living under a plastic dome. The price for their continuing survival is very high: at the age of 50, they are implanted with a special seed that turns them into a tree which will provide oxygen and food for the community. A young man, Stefan, accepts this system – until the day his wife Nóra decides to give up her life and undergo voluntary implantation. Driven by his love for her, Stefan decides to break the rules of society in order to save her.
