Three Fitted Flies (Tres Moscas a Medida – 2015)


With apparently simple animation we get introduced to the village world and traditions of our grandparents. It is a melancholic work with hints of dark humor that is mixed with nice sound-effects.

By Sois De Traca (

Scorching summer in the village. Prying neighbours, mourning rituals, tediousness and undertones of guilt make a perfect soil for madness. The old woman will try to bring her late husband back by means of twisted rituals.

7′ 47” / Colour / 2015 / Spanish with English subtitles
Direction, Writing, Animation and Sound by Sois de Traca.
Short animated film produced during a two months artist in residence program in Kaunas, Lithuania.
