“The Owl” (2006) – Short Film


Our short animation this week is Emmanuel Ho’s “The Owl,” a fascinating, dark, surreal music video for I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness. What is especially striking about this film the the skill with which Ho conveys the desperation of the raven and the menace of the owl, deftly switching between the images to create a palpable tension that is (ultimately) left unresolved at the film’s conclusion.
