Lignum Love

Poland | 2 min | Animation, Drama, Family, Romance, Other | 2019 | Short Film (Animation) | No Voice

The film consists of symbolic images that present love on three different levels, in three other aspects. As the first - love that we can see in the nature surrounding us. As the second - interpersonal love, to a beloved person. As the third - human love for nature, we are part of, although we forget about it so often. Without this love, we could not exist. We need it to live in harmony with the world around us. The film also contains reflections about the transience. One life gives birth to a new one. So, we all are connected to life, death, people, trees and we all form one common circle.

বাংলা

চলচ্চিত্রটি তিনটি ভিন্ন স্তরের প্রতিকী চিত্রকে উপস্থাপন করেছে। প্রথমত - ভালবাসো যা আমরা আমাদের চারপাশের প্রকৃতিতে দেখতে পাই। দ্বিতীয়ত - ভালবাসা, প্রিয় ব্যক্তির প্রতি। তৃতীয়ত - প্রকৃতির জন্য মানুষের ভালবাসা, যা আমাদের অংশ, যদিও আমরা এটি প্রায়শই ভুলে যাই। এই ভালবাসা ছাড়া, আমরা জীবিত থাকতে পারতাম না, আমাদের চারপাশের বিশ্বের সাথে সামঞ্জস্যপূর্ণভাবে বেঁচে থাকার জন্য এর প্রয়োজন। চলচ্চিত্রটিতে অস্থায়িত্বতা সম্পর্কেও প্রতিফলন রয়েছে। একটি জীবনে নতুন আরেকটি জীবনের জন্ম দেয়। জীবন, মৃত্যু, মানুষ, গাছ, আমরা সবাই একে অপরের সাথে সংযুক্ত।
