Crow’s Nest

Directed by Chrystene Ells

Produced by Jon Montes

With only cawing crows to keep her company, a wordless child searches for life and beauty in a post-water wasteland. Ruled by a domineering mother, she at last finds freedom in a feather that falls from the sky. Director Chrystene Ells seams together stark graphite on paper animation with mixed media techniques to create an impressionist world of desperation and flight.
