Synopsis

Shot in real nature, in the tropical rainforests of Mexico and Peru, this film captures the eternal dance of life and death as experienced by magical creatures of porcelain - animals, birds, insects and flowers - fragile and resilient at the same time. Time passes here in a strange way, moving in an unexpected pace. The unique combination of natural light, fast flowing time and subtle stop motion animation creates a unique poetic reality that makes us aware of the magic and materiality of our own living in this world.
