The Little Soul

Poland | 2019 | animated | 9 min. National competition

A journey through the land of the dead with the Soul that left its decomposing body. Following the light on a horseback, it ended up in a place where the souls of dead humans and animals meet. It will have to continue its further journey on its own. Repulsive images of the inside of the human body or flies hovering above the corpse engage the viewer into the dark, albeit fascinating, world of death. This ugly animation is full of references to painting, religious beliefs and ancient symbols.
