Mechanical Figures immerses the spectator in a complex and magical world infused by the inspiration, creativity and inventions of 19-century genius Nikola Tesla. Capturing the present, the future and the past of technological and social development initiated by some of major Tesla’s inventions, from alternating current to radio, the film questions the synergy of creation and sustainability through a story about art, science and technology.

Helena Bulaja (1971) is director, screenwriter and animator. In the early 1990s, her interactive media art projects were presented at Hotwired and Ars Electronica. In 2000 she initiated the most successful Croatian interactive project: a collection of animated and interactive stories Croatian Tales of Long Ago, based on a fairytale book written in 1916 by Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić.
