Animated films to classical musicArchive 1980 - 2001

The Swan

The film inspired by classical music was made using animation in friable matter. Following the rhythm of the music, a dancing girl is transformed into a swan, which flutters its wing and soars up to the sky. After a while, the swan becomes a dancing girl again. In the end the swan and the girl intermingle with each other, united in motion and gesture.
