The Dance in the Depth


The film is a metaphorical dance. Dance of passion till the end.

A raven lives in a congested and noisy city. Once he saw a dream. Following this dream, he decided to escape the city and flew to the sea. The Raven trembled at the sight of the giant creature - the Whale. The anticipation of the unexperienced filled his heart. He rushed to the Whale and was caught in his breath. The Raven woke up in the Whale’s belly. He set off to search for a source of light. He saw it – the Whales’ Soul. It was so colorful and dancing! The Raven fell in love with it. He didn’t realized that Whale and his Soul inextricably bound together by the strings of Life. An all-encompassing dance submerged them into the depth of inexistence.

Our Review:

This is a very creative animation that tries to convey a message with simple art. We all chase our dreams and get intimidated by big whales in the society. But ultimately all of us have similar souls. Instead of getting lost or swallowed by whales in the society and getting lost, we should achieve our dreams by fighting till the end.
