Moving Poems returns from its extended summer holiday with this beautiful animated short by the Bulgarian-born artist Emma Vakarelova, who is currently based in Valence, France. There are no English subtitles, but a translation of the brief text is provided in the description on Vimeo:

Before I became an island, I was called Kalina… Before Marcos saw me, he was a postman…

Vakarelova adds that this is her first film. Here’s hoping for many more.
