Birth

A dreamlike sequence in a magical forest, Birth is an experimental animated piece that follows the fantastical journey of two unusual lovers. Their tale unfolds in a dangerous parallel world, where the hunters are hunted, and where love must literally transform to overcome deep obstacles.

The unique texture of the imagery in Birth stems from its collaged, illustrated backgrounds, which are paired with live actors shot in a series of vignettes. The story found its original seed and inspiration in the music of composer John Kusiak, who has worked extensively with documentary legend Errol Morris.

This film is a collaboration between Devilfish Films and Mythic Image Studios, run by our talented colleague Jessica Fox. We are proud to announce that it has just been accepted into the 2013 Woods Hole Film Festival, where it will premiere.
