Fruits of Clouds


Plody mraků

Directed by Kateřina Karhánková
Czech Republic | 10 minutes | 2017 | no dialogue

On the glades surrounded by dark woods, Furry together with a group of friends, live in the burrows. They feed themselves only by seeds which became glowing fruit after touching the ground. However, these appear only rarely. The animals’ fear of the wood does not allow them to leave the glade and head off to look for the food somewhere else. Instead, they resignedly wait until it falls from the sky. Furry does not want only to wait. The wood awakens curiosity in him. He wants to know, what is hiding in there…
