Ab ovo

[5'18'', 2013]

producer: PWSFTviT

Imagine your body stops being only yours. Someone starts to live inside you, changing the rules, taking more and more space, a milimeter every day, not caring that he almost makes you explode. Would you be able to love this thing and call it your child?

An enchanting clay stop-motion animation about the process of becoming a mother.
