Beginning of the Light

Animated short film

Anastasia MELIKHOVA[Russia]


The work is based on a tale about the creation of the sun and moon. Twins, brother and sister, grow a tree, and one day the warm-colored leaf appears. Their world becomes threatened by a terrifying being that looks like a tiger, but the gods find the twins, and the sun and moon are born. The work depicts a rebirth of the world with hand-drawn animation with a hint of paint brush strokes.
