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.
