HOW TO RAISE THE MOON

HOW TO RAISE THE MOON
photo © Reflektorium/Anja Struck

In a place of condensed time, stagnant things become alive and Sleep (Fox) and Death (Bunny) are fighting over a sleeping woman’s life.

An experimental animation about stalemate and cessation, surreal cycles in a poetic world and the secret of how to raise the moon.
