Anton Dyakov "Bach" (2010)

Here's one for when you want to chill out, relax, listen to the sounds of a forest at night, owls, assorted other bird song, the distant sound of a train. Live at a snail's pace. Listen to Bach. Watch Bach. Anton Dyakov's gently humorous five minute short takes a short journey the length of a branch as a snail goes for a drink. It has company, notably fireflies and a large fish. There's even a commotion as humans pass by. The only respondent to the YouTube link wonders what is it all for. I've wondered the same myself over the years. But I think I know the answer in this case. Thirst. Anton studied at Moscow's Shar Studio. He has a new film, Kostya, out for Annecy. The music is Art of Fugue, BWV 1080: Contrapunctus 1, the players The Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet

Such a beautiful animation! Quite sad but really sweet.
