In the colonial port of Bushehr, the horror of an imminent eternal lunar eclipse was met with a special ritual, the Deyzangeroo. Between the starry skies, the black waves and the dark coast a rhythmic chanting unleashed forces which multiplied to re-capture the light. Ehsan Gharib uses the expressive force of painting on glass, interval photography and mirror tricks – set to the mystic music of Habib Meftah Boushehri.

The couple live high above the city in the basket of a crane. The woman fire fighter and the magician share the small joys and worries of life in their intimate life together. The world is still as it should be up here. Or is it? Similarities with escapist tendencies when dealing with the chaos of our riotous world are bound to be purely coincidental in this animated satire. The dynamic lines of the drawings are reinforced by a strong soundtrack by Canadian soprano Natalie Choquette.

Manivald (fox, 33) lives under his draconian, slightly weird mother’s thumb. His repressed behaviour takes a turn when the washing machine breaks down. That is, takes a turn when Toomas the plumber (wolf, sexy) appears with his “deluxe tools”. Candy-pink romance, tough drama and depth psychology, packaged with delicate comedy and a remarkable sense of timing by Chintis Lundgren.
