Animated short film
Jacky DE GROEN [Belgium]
Eclipse is a hand-drawn animation aiming to provide a visual experience rather than just a narrative. Obscured by a lunar eclipse, the circus act of the lion tamer turns into a game of hide and seek. Created with paints in a style reminiscent of early animation, man and beast confront each other in this playful, hypnotic spectacle of light and darkness.
