Animated films to classical musicArchive 1980 - 2001

Spring from „The Four Seasons”

Film impression inspired by the music of Antonio Vivaldi made in the mixed animation technique. The subject of a musical piece serves as a pretext for an allegorical story of the conception of human file and achieving maturity. A colourful butterfly flies out of an eye and diffuses with a man’s face. Another butterfly sits on orchid, merges with it and then it transpires that this is a woman’s face. Both faces join together. After a while the camera follows a tiny seed rushing into matter. The seed begins to grow rapidly and turns into a human embryo. From that moment images on blocks – puzzles start changing very fast showing life from the moment of birth, through first steps taken by a child and learning about the world to full maturity.
