This experimental animated film traces the journey of a small round object which overcomes various obstacles before finally merging with a large white sphere… A symbolic film whose rhythm is set by the music of Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli; the images aren’t painted with colour, but with tea.


Synopsis

This experimental animated film traces the journey of a small round object which resolutely overcomes all sorts of obstacles before coming to the end of its travels through the “labyrinth” and merging with a large white sphere… A remarkable symbolic film with a haunting rhythm set by a concerto grosso by Italian Baroque composer and violinist Arcangelo Corelli; the images aren’t painted with colour, but with tea.
