    The director invited more than 1,000 people (more than 900 children) to participate in painting a variety of animal graffiti, and eventually made the animation. In the process of participation, let the children know that humans and creatures are creatures living on the earth. "All things form a living, and beings benefit each other." When species are extinct, humans will also flee. Mankind can conquer the Earth and conquer space, but it should be boring if only human beings survived.

  8. USA 2017
    Directed by: Melissa Ferrari
    Animation: Melissa Ferrari
    Technique: natural materials and pastel-on-paper palimpsest animation woven together with a multiplane and analog overhead projection.
    Production/School: School: California Institute of the Arts (Experimental Animation M.F.A.)
    Dialogue language: English

    Phototaxis draws parallels between Mothman, a prophetic and demonized creature in West Virginia lore, and Narcotics Anonymous, the primary treatment program in West Virginia’s addiction epidemic. Rooted in nonfiction through a curation of archival text, this film contemplates synchronicity and the role of belief systems in perception; the tendency to assign supernatural meaning to tragedy and the unknowable; anonymous and apocryphal oral histories; and the moth to the flame. To visualize these narratives, natural materials and pastel-on-paper palimpsest animation are woven together using a multiplane and analog overhead projection.

    Form merges with content as the path of a rigidly thinking man is tracked abstractly. At first, the words and structures of the material world constrict him, placing his thoughts and actions within boxes of his own creation. Slowly but surely, he begins to orchestrate an escape, allowing more diversity into his life. He eventually breaks completely free, allowing his experiences to bend and fold into one another, informing his interpretation of the world around him, and thus examining his experiences in a more fluid, connective manner. Based on a poem by Aldous Huxley
