Throwing up the earth









“Throwing up the earth” (May 2005) is an experimental animation film about the never-ending process of creation.

It is based upon a myth of creation of the Bushongo people who live in and around Congo. In this myth the god Bumba creates the earth, the sky and all the living creatures by vomiting.

The animated objects in the film exist for 99,9% of mud, sand and water.
