Mambo

Siri Melchior, Julie Bille, Denmark, 1996

5 min.DK/ExperimentalAnimation

A strikingly colourful, crayon on frosted cells, animated surrealistic torrent, inspired by the work of female Peruvian singer, Yma Sumac. Music and imagery flow congenially together in this tragi-comical story of a little boy who dies and ascends to heaven, only to be seduced by an operatic angel who then takes him by the hand on a one-way descent into hell!
