a film by Louis Lefebvre
I'd seen mention of this wonderful (and politically charged) 3D animation by Louis Lefebre but got distracted by other things; many thanks therefore to Matthew Hunter for his email reminding me that this really is something Free Planet should be featuring.
Based in the beautiful Laurentian mountains just north of Montreal, Canada, Heliofant is a nascent independent computer animation studio focused on creating experimental and challenging content. Bringing together artists from the fields of dance, music, computer animation and visual arts, the company is very interested in exploring the common ground that underlies many spiritual and philosophical traditions in a lyrical form.
There is a glosary of surrealist terms or iconographical explanation for this film on Heliofant's Gallery page, if you wanna know what the hell it's all about.
