I Moving Puppets, Invisible Gates I

  • 1h 13 min
  • Puppet Movie, короткометражки

There are a lot of things puppets can do, like play with their sisters, grannies, horses, feet, dolls, animals and the sea itself. This tribute presents them as they confront their own environments, sources of aspiration and limitation. Puppets learn, dare to have feelings, and get crushed when their dreams fail. They are not human miniatures or mirrors; they are living characters coming from Estonia, Germany, China, Iran, Spain, France, and Greece. They are ready to fight against national and global sources of worry which are not easy to detect but too easy to feel. Whatever the outcome might be, their effort is tangible and very much present.

War has plagued humanity throughout history, but today it is spoken of in terms of politics, of strategy, and of territories lost or recaptured. Dead Horses presents a vision of wartime on the ground from the point of view of a bewildered child. From this place of naiveté, war is experienced as strange iron birds, giant eggs that make mud splashes, a pile of sticks that was once a village, and mysterious dead horses. But even an innocent child knows when death is near.
