“I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.” – Edvard Munch, 1893
Sebastian Cosor is a Bucharest-based Romanian animator whose new work brings back to life an old single of Pink Floyd, “The Great Gig in the Sky”, in the most unexpected way ever. The 3 minutes movie clip dreams up the immortal yet frightening painting of Edvard Munch, “The Scream”. The mix between these two masterpieces couldn’t be a better match.
