PRODUCED BY: Boddah / Passion Pictures

In the silence of the outer space, planets and stars uphold their mute coexistence. One of them is marked by absence and a longing for something to complement its existence – an angst felt by its every guest. The cosmos answers the gray giant’s pleas and sends a monolith – full of life and covered in plants – to reinvigorate the planet and give it some character. But what will happen when this happiness has to move on to its next destination? In her animation, Réka Bucsi presents the cosmogony of love, subtly portraying emotions and masterfully playing with form. The trajectory of love that comes and goes is expressed both universally and substantively. Therefore it is impossible to look away from “Love” and not be impacted by its story.
