Stiltwalkers

Top of page

A solitary fisherman carves and sketches to pass the time. But this day his drawings seem to have a life of their own. Fish fly off the pages and leap into the sea. An island appears on the watery expanse, and the poles around his boat begin to move ominously. His own creation seems to give rise to a strange, surreal and ultimately fragile two-dimensional world, guarded by a tribe of stiltwalkers.

Stiltwalkers is a parable about the creative power of the mind. Rendered with an extraordinary eye to detail, it is a world where people and objects flow fluidly between two and three dimensions. The music and soundtrack heighten the mystery. Film without words.

2002, 12 min 56 s
