“Desaturated” is a 10-minute visual comedy. The comedic value of the film is built on the fact that the character knows that she is a character in a film, and is trying to overcome the visual clichés without which we cannot imagine modern cinema. The main conflict of the character is in her having a colour that is different from the general colour treatment of the film. In 9 minutes, the character must bring everything to the same colour palette. The film is set in realist Lviv, with a focus on the visual colour conflict of modern Lviv (old architecture that is chaotically painted in bright colours)

Nucleus Through his research, Falk Marna has succeeded in using bacteria to synthesize a fluid that reveals a form of communication in carbon atoms. Falk thinks he knows what guides the souls of his fellow human beings deep inside. Yolanda, his colleague, considers the stimulated state of the carbon atoms not as a conspiracy of nature but as a delusional projection of him. Falk connects the process with the experiments of Arthur Eddington in 1919 on the island of Príncipe, where he wanted to prove Einstein's theory of relativity.

In the town of Greenock, west coast of Scotland, there is urban legend of a man called the Catman. Who is said to be a Half-man, half-feral creature that lives outside crawls around on all four’s and eats only what he can find.
In this short docs-fiction the filmmakers imagine him as a part-vagrant, part philosopher, part supernatural presence, who leads us on a journey through the post-industrial harbour town, where he lives.
Catman’s Greenock is as much a poetic film about a dying town as it is about the mythology of a local hero.
