ABOUT "The Dream Of A Moth"

The Dream Of A Moth is a hand drawn animation based on the parable of the same name. It tells us about a moth that flies out to be someone else. Attracted by the sunlight, it leaves its nocturnal realm and seeks its place in the beauty of the day - only to fail in it...


A touching short story to find your way home and back to yourself. Told in pictures and with the beautiful music by Simon Daum.
