This short semi-animated film tells the story of a woman’s spectacular ocean view from her apartment in Vancouver’s West End. How far will she go when leaves start to obscure her panorama, her light and her happiness?
A brilliant blend of stop-motion, projections and models, drawings and altered live-action transports us into a meditation on the tension between urban life and the natural environment.
Like Don Giovanni, will our ambitious protagonist stop at nothing to get her way?
