ABOUT
THE SPYGLASS is a 2D-animated short film for children and adults. In the film, we end up on the border between reality and fantasy and explore this place together with the main character Eden. Main theme: loneliness. By Malin Erixon.

Finished film: Sept, 2021. Expected release: Jan, 2022.


SYNOPSIS
Ten-year-old Eden often feels forgotten by and invisible to their parents, who often quarrel or are busy with other things. To escape the fighting and loneliness, Eden has created a secret place in the garden, where they usually lie on a blanket and eat cookies with their tin friend, Toy Robot.

One day something very peculiar happens. Eden has constructed a spyglass using two empty toilet paper rolls and has headed out into the garden. There they observe their surroundings through their new self-made binoculars. At first, everything looks ordinary. But when their eyes wander across the tree tops, they quickly realize there’s something special with the spyglass. Who are those quirky birds sitting there – having coffee? And what hilarious earthworms dancing Riverdance in the compost! What captures Eden the most, however, is what they see through the spyglass when it’s aimed towards the family’s living room window…

Imagination is mixed with reality and soon we don’t know what – or who! – is real or make-believe.
