12 Sketches on the Impossibility of Being Still is a collection of animated experiments exploring the spaces where nothing happens: the liminal zone that exists between you and me, between here and there, sound and silence, movement and stillness.


MAGALI CHARRIER is a film-maker, experimental animator and artist. A background in fine art, animation and live performance has led to her unique style of work which explores ideas of motion and stillness. Her most recent work puts mark-making at the centre of film-making to question the materiality of movement and of human presence. She lives and works in London.
