Tiny Big

2017, Lia Bertels, Belgium, 5 min.

At once fanciful and disquieting, "Tiny Big" presents a series of seemingly unrelated vignettes expressed through simple black-and-white line drawings, punctuated with occasional surprising bursts of color. Underscored by a soundtrack featuring the sounds of nature - wind, waves, crickets - the film eschews narrative, challenging viewers to draw their own conclusions about the significance of ritualized actions in a world that's both hauntingly familiar and decidedly strange.
