Large-scale shadow puppet theatre from a birds eye view. Crows are re-dreaming the world. Is the future all it's cracked up to be? This modern fable is told using handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks, and an original musical score. Mind of a Snail's large scale shadow puppetry is quirky, colorful and beautiful, like early animation performed live before your eyes.
