Metamorfoza

Director: 

Metamorfoza is close to Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony theme. After the 1917 revolution Shostakovich remained in the Soviet Union, where he got the brunt under the Stalin regime. His Seventh Symphony, written in 1941 during the siege of Leningrad, was dedicated to "our upcoming victory over the enemy." Officially he meant the Nazis, but between the lines it was an indictment of Stalin. The theme of 'hidden truth' is central to Colburn’s film Metamorfoza. Made using stop frame animation, this film features dolls, sets and found footage and is accompanied by the composition of Juan Felipe Waller. The film was made possible by Collection de Bruin-Heijn(Cees and Inge de Bruin-Heijn / Aveline de Bruin, curator) and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra (Hans Waege, general manager).

director, animation: Martha Colburn
music: Juan Felipe Waller
