Solar Walk

Denmark / 2017 / animated / 21' / Docs+Science

Although this award-winning short animation was created as part of visuals for the concerts of the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra, it is also successful as a single, extraordinary artistic piece. "Solar Work" is an experimental and playful visual composition made by Hungarian-born Réka Bucsi. Space exploration pursued by the film protagonists is, according to Bucsi, a beautiful adventure, absurd and melancholic at the same time. The universe as animated by the artist reveals the face which is surprisingly friendly, if not human.
