    A film inspired by the poems of "Flowers of Evil" by Charles Bauldelaire. They tell us that the inherent feature of man is sin - which we can not get rid of in any way. There is no escape from sin, we are not able to bypass it in any way. Bauldelaire tells us that knowing that we will commit this sin, we should not run away from it but simply do it with happiness. After all, this is something that we could not do so far, and with this assumption, we can perfectly enjoy our sins when they come. My goal was not only the interpretation of his work, but rather paraphrased ideas - I wanted to add my own meaning and symbolism, using philosophical, religious and moral issues and my own life experience. Each element of the film has its symbolism and meaning, so each element should be interpreted. The film is like a poem, you need to see it many times and devote time to contemplating it's symbolism. A film made traditionally, drawn on sheets and scanned.

    The Great Chinese Cultural Revolution was a political campaign in China launched and led by Mao Zedong from 1966 to 1976. Nearly ten million people, including outstanding scientists, artists, intellectuals and ordinary people, died during these "Ten Years of Turnmoil" or "Ten Years of Holocaust." This animated short film is based on a real story and sets in China during the Cultural Revolution in 1967, It is about a young boy Liang Liang, whose family is suddenly taken to the countryside by Red Guards. He is able to grab the only thing he treasures which is a western style music box, and is careful not to expose it to the red guards since it was linked to western culture. The film mirrors tragedies that befall children and families who are forced to leave their homes, due to war, colonization and political campaigns - unfortunately a situation which is all too common today.
