Yonder - a video

Yonder from Emilia on Vimeo.


Eerie and absorbing and delightful.

It reminded me, at some points, of Fantasia, and at other points of the animations in Monty Python's Flying Circus.

There's whimsy in it, along with beauty and mystery.

But the word "yonder" suggests distance, while I prefer to think of the sort of lovely and peculiar landscape and the creatures found in Yonder as just beneath the surface of things nearby (like opening up a dark closet, where your coat and boots are, and finding nameless colorful shape-shifters).

Wow! Strong resonances here of chemical enhancement during a dissolute youth. Beautiful and unsettling.
