Switzerland · 2018 · DCP · Color · 8' · o.v. No Dialogue
On a small planet, caught up in their own little private universe, the inhabitants perform their poetically surreal actions, which repeat themselves in an endless loop. The fact that all of them are a part of a complex ecosystem functioning only because they each play their part, is something they are unaware of.

With a focus on their small delicate rituals the inhabitants on this circular planet demonstrate a reliance on each other for this ecosystem to operate. Delia Hess' gentle animated parable explores the connection between each small gesture, and the balance needed between nature and human existence.
