Fox Woman (2002)

Original title: Rebasenaine

Animation Duration 10:46

The 10-minute animated film “Fox Woman” is based on a legend of Mapuche Indians. It is the story about a fox that goes to heaven to visit her uncle, and gets cruelly cast down. In the film the personification of animals provides this slightly absurd legend with social context. The film as a whole could be classified as a comedy and its main audience could be teenagers.
