Once upon a time…
Teisel pool metsa (or, The Other Side of the Woods) is gorgeous part live-action, part stop-motion short film — and, I think, a little gem.
It was made by Estonian film maker Anu-Laura Tuttelberg, and — strangely, given that it was made in 2014 — it’s been cropping up all over social media in the last few days. It’s gorgeous and evocative, and the music by Sander Põldsaar is perfect to go with the wordless story. It’s partly familiar, yet rendered gloriously strange and eerie.
So, take some time out of your day, grab a cuppa, sit back and lose yourself in something different.
I’d love to know what you think.
