A short film set to the music of Dies Irae from the Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This fully auteur film impression was made using the paint animation direct under-the-camera technique. Jasińska-Koronkiewicz creates an emotional film tale inspired by the horses of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
