HONOURABLE MENTION - Minimalen Short Film Festival 2021
"Survival, motherhood, death and beyond to alternate dimensions,
parallel lives – we’ve never seen anything like it before, truly
unique... Propelled by a triumphant orchestral score it takes us into
the depths of weirdness where birth and death meet in an endless cycle
of rainbows, blood and breast-milk."
LIAF Jury (Sophie Koko-Gate, Chris Shepherd, Max Hattler)
"Exceptionally surprising and darkly funny, this animated curiosity
loops and warps a message of monochromatic destruction and rainbow
creation into a warning about nature - our own and Earth's. In an
orchestral explosion of collapse and colour, this hypnotic trip shows
life and death as a queer, surreal and grotesque pattern of regeneration
and degeneration that affects both land and body."
Minimalen Short Film Festival Jury
