synopsis
It's the future, and humanity appears to be but a memory, existing only in scattered pieces. That is until a pillow's needlepoint rendering of three individuals, collectively known as the Clothespin Freaks, finds the spark of life and surfaces to fulfill their destinies, hinted at by their names. Once aware of their purpose, the group begins assembling the remains of humanity they see all around them.

director
Catya Plate, born in Barcelona, Spain, and raised in Germany, is a Brooklyn based award winning filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist. Her animated films, sculptures, paintings, and drawings explore the ephemeral nature of existence by creating an alternative universe, which exposes, among other things, humanity's impact on the environment. Catya is a Fulbright Alumna and has been exhibiting internationally since the mid-1980's. Her work is in public and private collections worldwide, like the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art Library in New York City. Articles and reviews about her films and projects have appeared in Film Threat, BOOM!Film Reviews, The New York Times and The Independent, and others. In 2009, she created Clothespin Freak Productions to bring her “Clothespin Freaks” characters to life through stop-motion animation short films. In 2012, her first film "The Reading", was awarded Best Animated Film at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival. Her second film “Hanging By A Thread”, screened at over 22 film festivals in the US and abroad, like the Academy Award-qualifying St. Louis International Film Festival and won 9 awards. "Meeting MacGuffin", the sequel of “Hanging By A Thread” and second in a trilogy of shorts was completed in February 2017 and is currently making its rounds in the international film festival circuit. "Meeting MacGuffin" has won many awards, among them the GRAND PRIZE for Best Animated Short at the Academy-Award qualifying Rhode Island International Film Festival-Vortex in October 2017.
