"Memento mori - remember that you must die. The journey of a butterfly becomes a melancholic metaphor of a human life, lost in an unknown world."

AA: A refined visual poem about mortality. The sea, the night, the full moon. A butterfly flies into a flame, is resurrected, drinks red wine, and turns black. The broken window becomes mystically whole again, and when a swarm of butterflies emerges from a skull they all perish by the window. The style, the atmosphere, and the technique are all finely accomplished.
