My latest stop motion film All tender things tells a story about six characters gathered around a campfire. When the flames starts to fade the fire needs to be fed. Books are sufficient at first, but as the night grows darker, more sacrifices are demanded.
In a secular society experiences of the sacred are no longer commonly shared. Some people consider nature, homeland or religion as sacred. For others it can be totally different things. They might sanctify love, the body, food or art. Can we honor other people’s sacred values?
The film was completed in summer 2020.
