Icarus' Dream









“Icarus’ Dream” is the story of a man falling in the ocean of the unknown side of the mind. Icarus indeed is a mythological character that symbolically falls in to the depth of the ocean.

The interpretation is absolutely personal, there is not a proper narration, it is indeed, like in a dream, a sequence of animated scenes accompanied by sounds.

My aim was to imagine the dream of a fictional character, to give a body to the psychological life of a mythological being as Icarus, that so well represents the danger and the beauty of being young.
