Way of giants

Am very impressed by this film. Perhpas more than anyting else in 2015.  Is a 2D hand drawn animated short film, with a wonderfull music, that deals with loss in a magical way. The film is entirely narrated by the music from a wooden flute, it will feel as one big musical ritual.

Way of Giants – The Story
The story follows Oquirá, a nine year old indigenous amazonian girl as she tries to change her inevitable destiny. In her journey she must learn to accept the cycle of life, and the difficulties that come with it.

Film is takes place in a forest of gigantic trees, where a tribe of natives live. They depend solely on nature, and specifically on these trees to survive.

One of the many things that they build from wood are the flutes that the tribe uses in their rituals. The children must learn how to carve these musical instruments out of branches from the trees. These are handed to the older members of the tribe to be used in the rituals.
