Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

The main part of this film project ‘To set the Mood’ at the Art School Weissensee in Berlin was to design a title sequence for a favorite film, book or an original story. I took a film by Armenian director Sergej Paradzhanov ‘Shadows of forgotten Ancestors’. Using paper cut-outs I tried to reflect the atmosphere and roughness of the Carpathian Ukraine, but at the same time the lyrics of everyday life there. This animation was exhibited as a finalist at the International Biennale ‘Golden Bee 9’ in Moscow, Russia in 2010 in the category Graphic Design and New Media.
Music: Dakha Brakha
