Yikásdáhí – Awaits the Dawn

Director: Gabriela Clar
Country of Origin: Argentina

When the time comes to create the sky chart, the Black God takes his blueprints and a sack filled with stars to set about creating the constellations. But things get complicated when his actions catch the eye of Coyote, a troublemaker who thinks any excuse is good enough to make some mischief. Based on a Navajo legend.

Director’s Statement:

This short film is based on a Navajo legend about the creation of the constellations. I wanted to tell this story using cut out animation, trying to make it as visually interesting as posible, and making sure you could get what happens without the need of any dialogue.
