"Clairière" is a dark, deconstructed fable presenting a character awakening in the woods at night, with an extinguished campfire of human limbs nearby. Using an automatist method, the animation was produced without scripts and storyboards and explores the uncanny and wonderment, and their relationship to affect in the viewing of the moving-image.
