Princess and the Wolf

Princezna a Vlk

A little girl awakens in to a flooded world where the sun is missing and all sorts of creatures are crowding her flowing bed, will they find the sun?

A little girl awakens as if from a bad dream in to an even worse nightmare. The world is flooded and burning and the sun is gone. She is not alone though, she has to share her floating bed with other little beings – cockroaches, other bugs, mice, snails, frogs. Scared and feeling alone, she must muster the courage to stand up for herself and the world, being led by her animal companions. They need to find the sun and return the world back to what it was. To make it light and green again. The sun is held prisoner by a selfish house, that wants it all for itself.

Director’s statement
This is an auteur film, which heavily bases its concept on the theme of respecting nature and working with it towards a symbiosis for a brighter future for our upcoming young generations. The absence of the sun is a metaphor for our civilization's lack of respect for nature and a nod to the climate crisis. This film is also very strongly visual and atmospherical, creating a dark but colorful world, which gets under our skin and makes us take in the importance of being a part of a hole world of living beings and organisms, living and breathing, which animation does so very well.
The sound design is also a very important part of this worlds design, where everything creaks and burns.
The technique of animation used is 2D digital drawn animation and digital cutout animation, with emphasis on texture, color and a more hand made feel of the visuals.
