SYNOPSIS

⁣“η μητέρα μου, η θάλασσα” (“my mother, the sea”) is a short animated film, which explores and symbolically expresses my grieving process for my mother’s loss, from her passing until today. This three year journey is captured allegorically in this film as a weaving of two parallel paths; the mother’s journey to the afterlife and the parallel grieving states of her child.
From the last breath, to the mourning and the only temporal salvation from it. It is an observation of her transition, which her child follows with its personal emotional dissolve.
