Simon Bogojevic-Narath – Levijatan AKA Leviathan (2006)
…who is the creature built from people?
Why is it wearing a crown and what is it doing with a pastoral in one hand and a sword in the other?
How come people shake hands with skeletons and stones obediently pile up, forming a pedestal for a golden statue?
What’s more, why are petals, of all things, swirling within streams of grey smoke?
Jerky but smiling characters from this short film will take the audience through this animated pageant inspired by a book “The Leviathan” by Thomas Hobbes, written in 1651.
You’ve guessed it…
It’s all about what happens…when shit hits the fan!
An animated parable about the war and its disasters. A critique about the violation of human rights. A mind-blowing 3D visual journey through the hell that man reproduces on Earth.
