MOTH

Film by Allison Schulnik * 2019 * 3:15min Gnossienne No. 1 * written by Erik Satie * Performed by Nedelle Torrisi **************************************^****************************************** MOTH is a traditionally animated, hand painted, gouache-on-paper film. It is animated mostly straight-ahead, with frames painted on paper almost daily for 14 months. The film seeded and bloomed from the simple act of a moth hitting the artist’s studio window and continues as a wandering through the primal emotions of birth, motherhood, body, nature, metamorphosis and dance.
