Eva Lindström, Sweden, 2013

12 min.Short fictionChildren's films, Animation

First we meet a little lamb who bored out of his wits and runs away from his flock. When he discovers that nobody notices he's going away, he sends them a postcard, telling them he's run away. The others then ask him to come back, but will he? "I'm running away" is a story about the desire to be part of a group, but also to be unique and find your own identity.

»In Woods and Fields« is based on the books »A Bird Day«, »I'm Running Away!« and »My Friend Lage« written and illustrated by Eva Lindström. The films recount the feeling of longing for something else. About running away from home to find your place in the world to be able to find your way home.
