The Futakuchi-onna (Two-Mouthed Woman) : in Japanese mythology, there was a miser who lived by himself because he did not want to spent money on food for a wife. When he met a woman who did not eat anything, he married her, but soon his stores of rice began decreasing. One day he stayed behind from work to spy on his new wife. He saw her hair part on the back of her head to reveal a gaping mouth. She unbound her hair, which reached out like tentacles to shovel the rice into the hungry mouth.

A tale of love, betrayal and one vengeful butterfly. Created using paper cutouts and articulated paper puppets, "La Petite Mort" capitalizes on the anti-realism inherent to this stop-motion technique to conjure a dreamlike atmosphere of pure fantasy. This project was inspired by the surreal animations of the Polish and Czech animators Jan Lenica, Walerian Borowyck and Jan Svankmajer, Japanese tentacle erotica, and those strange, middle-of-the-night dreams one has after spicy food.
