Nightangel

Top of page

A seamless blend of puppet animation and the pinscreen technique is used in this evocative, romantic story of a man's obsession with a mysterious and benign spirit. When tragedy befalls him, he finds refuge in the love this nightangel has shown him. Film without words.

1986, 18 min 41 s
