Theodore Ushev's latest work, "The Physics of Sorrow", is the first fully animated work to use the technique of encaustic painting, inspired from a novel by Bulgarian writer Georgi Gospodinov. The film paints a compelling picture of a disconnected generation, lost inside perpetually shifting spaces both private and geographical. Every frame of the film, exquisitely drawn and animated by the Oscar-nominated filmmaker, is a work of art in itself, aptly evoking the mesmerizing existence of its nostalgic protagonist. The film is eligible for the Guy-L.-Coté Award for the best Canadian animated film.
