Shaman Fighters

From Martin Carolo comes the mostly black-and-white animation Shaman Fighters.  This harsh, angular, and stylized short shows us the story of a chopped down tree, and includes scenes to suggests the tree has a soul and is freed by it's "death." A lot of surrealistic imagery that makes it a bit of a trip, but fun to watch.  I loved the occasional use of twitchy animation, a technique that makes the ambiance just a tad bit uncomfortable.
