Digital Fairy Tales: Transformation! delves back into the Franz Xaver von Schönwerth archive of old German folk tales for a selection featuring wise animals making magic transformations.
A group of filmmakers, illustrators, musicians, photographers, performers, and video artists have re-imagined these once often told tales in and for our digital era. In doing so, surprising connections through time, geographies, realities even, are articulated, and enlivened.
This is the eighth installment of the Digital Fairy Tales series which began in 2016, though it really began in the 1700s (or earlier) in the Oberfalz area of Germany, near what is today the Czech Republic.
