Una Furtiva Lagrima


A video selected by the Vimeo staff, a plea for catch & release : Furtiva Lagrima means Furtive Tear. It’s a Caruso song, illustrated by this strange animation, with singing and crying fishes.
“I shot this little musical film in my kitchen over a few weeks in late 2011. It is the result of my passion for beautiful sad opera songs and my interest in the tragic destiny of a fish.

It’s been in festivals this year, touring Annecy, Hiroshima, Ottawa, Telluride and more. It is also part of the 14th Animation Show of Shows.” You can visit the blog for more making of pics and film info : http://furtivalagrimafilm.blogspot.com/
