Small Wild Plants and Things I Don’t Know

Writer, Director & Animator: Ayala Shoshana Guy

“Small Wild Plants and Things I Don’t Know” is a poetic animated journey through the state of solitude -- or rather, isolation. As the outside world becomes more strange than comprehensible, the inner structures of language, of the self, of what exist, strip from meaning. At that moment there is an opportunity for an (almost) unmediated glimpse through the world of senses, which creates a different state of understanding and gives a new sense of being to oneself.
