THE SWAN OF TUONELA
Directed by Julie Zhu
The SWAN OF TUONELA is a lyrical allegory with playful sensibility through performance and brushwork. Inspired by the Finnish landscape and drawing upon the Finnish Kalevala myth of the birth of the moon as well as Pierrot’s timeless role, the stop-motion animation is set to Sibelius’s mystical classical piece of the same title. A deletion of one’s creation as self-confrontation is a lesson in responsibility and acceptance of loss in the natural cycle of life.
