Eternal Hunting Grounds

eternal_posterStop- motion animation on a multi-level glass table

Two children on a small island play an important game. They take death out of the world. The children search intensively under stones, on the beach, in the mud and in the fields for dead animals. The animals are taken to the children’s own private graveyard. Here the  children bury the animals, decorate the graves, sing songs and recite poems. By burying the animals, the animals lives are renewed. They wake up in the beautiful, dynamic “The Eternal hunting grounds”.
