THE THEORY OF SUNSET
Russia 2017 9 min.
Dir. Roman Sokolov

This is one of the most celebrated short animated films of the last few years. Each morning, while everyone is asleep, a young boy crosses the wintry forest to do a very important job: to make sure that the new day starts on time. The story builds an imaginary explanation about different cycles: of the sun, of life and of death, all in harmonious existence.
