Dreams from the woods

One day the Girl leaves her friend Big Bird to seek adventure in the wide world. But lured by the beautiful music of Death's flute, she gets lost in the deep forest. A shadow-puppet play about love and sorrow.

The Swedish animator Johannes Nyholm presents us this sweet and yet frightening story of puppets that features a little girl eager to discover a new world. This creative animation (Johannes often use stop-motion and clay animation for his works) was presented in numerous festivals such as The Directors' Fortnight in Cannes, Guldbagge Festival, the Slovenian International Festival or the Indian Animation Festival among others and awarded in the Brazilian Janela Festival.
