This is the first video from The Disappearing One's debut album "Transitional Phase".
Animated short "The Forest" by David Scharf
Antonia is a 12 years old girl. She often has daydreams, in which she wonders of in to a magical far away forest, were she hides from the problems of the real world. One day, however, her father takes drastic measures and she has to face a decision.
Is your inner peace an utopian state until you have finally escaped the grip of the society and its rules? Or is affirmation a faster way to your personal luck? And what are you supposed to do, if you have to answer this question at the age of 12?
In the Animated Short "The Forest", the protagonist has to cope with this question and her hostile environment and finds a simple but radical solution.

Talking of all the things you’ve done
And all it’s lost and all it’s long
I realize that this world is mine
And all I want is my real own one
When I’m headed where you’ll never go
Will you find the road
When I’m talking a language noone knows
Will you find the words
And the wind keeps on tapping at your door
Will you let it in
And you hear it in the distance that black calls
Will you let…
Talking of all the things you’ve loved
And all it’s lost and all it’s gone
And feeling fine in this world of mine
And all I want is someone to loathe
The Disappearing One want to say THANK YOU David for sharing this stunning piece of art with us!
