A lunar eclipse obscures the relation between a lion and its tamer.

In the darkness of a lunar eclipse, the circus act of the lion tamer turns into an ambiguous game of hide and seek. Intermittent light reveals movement, the shapes of the lion and its tamer forever mutating as they chase one another in the dark. Boundaries between both creatures blur in a dream-like spectacle reminiscent of animation in its early days.
