The Frost Spirit
FILE 2018 | ANIMA +
Electronic Language International Festival
Sitting by a fire, a young boy on the cusp of adolescence feels a wind chill coming on. Afraid of the impending change and trying to hide from reality in his own mind, he instead is pursued by “The Frost Spirit”, who has ventured a great distance – drastically transforming everything he passes – to engage in a final confrontation, pitting old against new, stubbornness against acceptance.
Based on a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier
