What is the film about?

Classical music and cutout animation are a match made in musical heaven in this cut-out film by Aria Covamonas. A series of funny and surreal animated stories are paired with the fourteen movements of French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ musical suite The Carnival of the Animals. Each movement stars a different animal, from the regal lion to the slowest tortoise.

What influenced it?

Terry Gilliam’s animations for Monty Python Flying Circus, and the photomontages made by the members of Club Dada Berlin.
