Jury Selections

Erlking

Georges SCHWIZGEBEL

Animated short film [Switzerland]

Based on GOETHE's poem Erlking and its musical rendition by SCHUBERT and LISZT. A father rides with his ill son through the forest. The sick child thinks he sees the Erlking, who both charms and frightens him. The intention behind this short film is to substitute words with images and to accentuate, the four voices within GOETHE's poem: the narrator, the king, the child and the father.
(5 min. 30 sec.)
