Fursy Teyssier "Tir Nan Og"

Tir Nan Og by Fursy Teyssier is a mystical film about loss and leave-taking set in a Tolkein-like landscape of forest, sea and mountains. It commences on a clifftop where a child and her grandmother are playing on a grand piano. Along with a flock of sinister birds a bird-like figure shrouded in mystery arrives to take the old woman away and the girl attempts to follow. The movie was created this year as a graduation piece at L'Ecole Emile Cohl. The music was created by the band The American Dollar especially for the movie. It is a moody and atmospheric film with a touching ending and excellent artwork throughout. I think it is a Flash movie. You may view it at
