Stellar

In an anonymous and bleak city, people are as numb and square as the surrounding buildings.

Monotonous routines are carried out just like yesterday and the day before when all of a sudden organic, orange spheres emerge from dark corners, soaring lively towards the skies. As the spheres merge, getting bigger and bigger, the citizens finally pay attention and some curious souls accept the invitation to approach. At once, we are thrown into a baffling and beautiful world where you must lose yourself before you can find your true, passionate core.

Magda: A Short Film by Chel White

A first love is corrupted as a man recalls his affair with a beautiful circus contortionist in this stop-motion animation of wooden manikins. At its heart, Magda is an off-center parable about lost innocence and the corruptibility of human nature. Visually, the film explores the use of extreme telephoto lenses, creating enigmatic scenes that reveal themselves over time, and ghostly figures drifting in-and-out of focus.

Magda is filmmaker Chel White’s third adaptation of a story by radio artist and writer Joe Frank.

Produced & directed by Chel White • Written & narrated by Joe Frank.
