Ma hingan lihtsalt rohkem (I Just Breathe More)
Bruno Quast & Viktoria Grahv | 6:40 | 2020 | Estonia
The short film is based on the electroacoustic track by composer Viktoria Grahv “Ma hingan lihtsalt rohkem”, that was inspired by the concept of breathing to break chains. The animation reworks this theme, visualising the perceived inner movement of an anxiety attack, and embodies the process of dealing with it.
The whole project became for the composer and the animator an act of healing both self-directed as shared, directed at the intertwined, choking knot of breath and fear, issues now even more diffused.
