My graduate project “Arkosios” is a 2D animated short film about human nature. The main character of my film is a girl called Hope. She was abused as a child, hoping for Death to end her misery. But as Death stood by and did nothing, she was saved by Arko. Later in her life, she searches for the angel that once rescued her. When she finally meets him again, he’s the opposite of how she remembers him. My film explores the idea that people are not just good or bad, but, depending on the situation, choose which side to act upon.
