Stick Your Neck Out

Co-directed and co-written by Faruk Sabanovic & Eva Cvijanovic

Produced by Jelena Popović

Stick Your Neck Out is a short cautionary tale about an unstoppably growing baby giraffe and a small quick-witted fox trapped in a construction site. Filled with looming cranes, concrete and plastic tarps, urban development is represented as misguided progress where one can’t tell work lights from a sunset and the only food is sealed into tin cans.

Forced by their hostile surroundings to share a small shelter, the two animals slowly form a bond through play, problem-solving and collaboration to discover true friendship and trust as the only way forward.
