Något att minnas

Something to Remember
A zoo without animals, a doctor's office filled with sadness, the CERN nuclear research centre after a disaster. Is it the end of the world? Is the disaster yet to happen? Will the beetles’ prayers be heard? A band of weird animals leads us from room to room, through the present and the future. Their voices unite to form a lullaby: from laments to omens of the downfall, from hope to prayer. A puppet animation as a modern fable that lures into a sense of insecurity and raises many questions.
