The Metamorphosis of Mr. Samsa

Top of page

A film based on Franz Kafka's short story The Metamorphosis, the story is told through the animation of beach sand on a piece of glass. An imaginative sound track and innovative artwork combine to recreate a Kafkaesque world of alienation and guilt. Sound film without words.
