The Sword of the Sun is a short stop motion film very freely inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel Mr Palomar. Mr. Palomar finds interest in everything that comes into his sight, from a commonplace mismatched slipper to a beautiful starry sky. From his meticulous and empathetic observation of the world, he draws cascading reflections and tries to define his place in it, not without self-mockery.
WW0711 statement: Creative, experimental and inspiring. A unique short with some very funny ideas and a very confident style.
