Night [Νύχτα]

Created by Greek artist/animator Afroditi Bitzouni, Night is a visual interpretation of a famous poem by the same name crafted by Greek poet Tasos Livaditis. Executed using an animated paper collage aesthetic, it's a touching piece about struggling to cope from loss. The full poem is below, taken from 1972's Night Visitor.

There is a door in the night that only the blind see,

darkness makes the animals hear better,

and him, staggered, not from being drunk, 
but from his futile effort to climb 
up to the tower, we once lost.
