Winter from „The Four Seasons”

An animated film made in combined technique to the music of Antonio Vivaldi “Winter”, the fourth part of the concert “The Four Seasons”, has been inspired by the author as  a tale about the most important periods in human life. The picture combines the elements of the winter landscape with the old age emphasising their pathetic nature and close relationship. The nature and biological existence are used as a pretext for philosophical thoughts on the meaning of life.
