A Sonatina of Desire


This animation project isn’t based on any intricate plot or inciting incident, but holds more of a naive suspense. It’s a story built on the musical structure of a sonatina, and presents a tragic concept of desire, of having something without actually having it. The project, along with the atmosphere it conveys, has its origin and reference in the works of Russian animator Yuriy Norshteyn.
