HAVE A NICE DAY

by Jian Liu
2017 China, 77 min
in Mandarin, with English and Hungarian subs

HAO JI LE

A city in southern China and a bag containing a million yuan draws several people from diverse backgrounds with different personal motives into a bloody conflict. Philosophising gangster bosses, ageing hitmen, men and women who are tired of the struggle to survive – anyone who happens to have the bag holds on to it tightly, as if it were a lifeline.
Have a Nice Day is a black comedy; the film’s inscrutable, laconic humour holds up a magnifying glass to attitudes to life and social conditions. Humankind’s constant greed meets a deeply insecure country in transition. The reduced realism of the film’s animated tableau heightens and stylises the mood in today’s China, caught between stasis and a new beginning. The protagonists of this macabre dance wander, strangely lost, through precisely drawn but radically changing cityscapes. The signs and symbols of capitalism impose themselves everywhere, but most people are excluded from the life these signs promise.

    EXHIBITION OPENING

    The Studio for Experimental Animation at The University Of Applied Arts in Vienna was founded by the Maria Lassnig, the former Professor of the painting class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Maria Lassnig was an international known and respected painter, who engaged herself not only with painting, but also with the medium of analog film. In the 70ies she made a couple of experimental animationfilms during her time in New York.
    In 1982 Maria Lassnig founded the first Studio for experimental Animation in Austria, at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. The first worldwide, which combined animated film with painting. From 1991 to 2008 the department was lead by Prof. Christian Ludwig Attersee and since 2009 Prof. Judith Eisler is in charge.
    Since 1982 Hubert Sielecki had been the head of the studio for experimental animation, and since 2012 Nikolaus Jantsch is his successor. Praved Krishnapilla is responsible for the technical needs of the studio. Painting and animation film are both mediums which express an unfolding of time. Students utilize the formal aspects of painting (texture, colour, line, form) as a basis for exploring both narrative and abstract possibilities in animation film. Students transform single frame animation and storyboards into completed films. The studio offers access to a sound studio, interactive media and analogy and digital techniques. Until now it has a striking influence on the genre and has gained wide importance in the international Art scene.
