O Black Hole!
A woman who cannot stand the passing of time becomes a black hole. A thousand years go by without any change, until Singularity awakens inside her one day. O Black Hole! is a highly ambitious Space-Opera that blends very different techniques – first, 2D and stop motion – and manages to bring together fairy tale and melodrama, science, and magic, light and darkness.
