Black Ceiling (2007)

Original title: Must lagi

7 Animated Poems

Animation Duration 18:36

Seven animated poems. The Black Ceiling Project is a vision of 7 classic Estonian poems by 7 Estonian animators. Each two-minute film illustrates a more or less well-known text exactly the way the author of the film sees fit. The idea of the project is to create something new and unexpected by combining two branches of art. It is an experiment that unites visual poetry, or animation, with actual poetry.
