Nightingales in December depicts a painterly sequence of images unearthing the terrifying / nostalgic remnants of song-bird-human hybrids. An awesomely animated and enigmatic short by Theodore Ushev. Check it out after the jump.
More info about the piece can be read as follows:
“This metaphorical surrealist tale is an allusion. NIGHTINGALES IN DECEMBER is a trip into the memories, and the fields of the current realities. What if the Nightingales were working, instead of singing and going south? Is the innocence the only savior of birds songs? There are no NIGHTINGALES IN DECEMBER… What is left, is only the history of our beginning, and our end.”
