Moving Mountains

Germany2024animated6'International Short Competition

The characters of this animation are little creatures looking like people without faces, clothes or emotions. They swim between strange islands and discover new lands lighting their way with drifting eyeballs. They play games, have fun and rest. On the one hand, they seem to be roaming without an aim, while on the other, they try to move ‘mountains’ with all their might. This surreal story about little people is a metaphor of the lifestyle of modern nomads living a migrant lifestyle, constantly chasing novelty and, at the same time, entangled in old ways and habits.
