Spirits of the Piano

Magdalena Osińska
Skrzaty fortepianu
Poland 2011 / 2’

3-D puppet animation. Weird and wonderful spirits bring the flying machine, which has crashed on the cliffs, back to life. The magical creatures appeal to young children and the fabulous stop-motion animation appeals to artists and lovers of animation. With its Cronenberg overtones it also catches the eye of sci-fi lovers and teenagers.
