FJER – Pilot Episode
The blurb: “The bloodmoon is watching over young bird-woman Crane who is preparing for a lust-harvesting ritual in the bar of Bird’s Nest. Father, ruler and lover Hawker puts pressure on her. If she fails, she must die. Crane is lost in a seductive neon-dance when a mysterious stranger enters and disturbs the ritual.
So begins the story of FJER initiating a poetic and freaky urban fantasy web series about emancipation and discovery of own sexuality.”
This is the first part of an ongoing animated series and – unfortunately – the rest don’t seem to be online yet. The film is intriguing and has an amazing aesthetic mixed with some dark sexuality.
