Created while studying at the KASK School at the University College of Arts in Ghent, Belgium, Jeroen Ceulebrouck’s film short, Oak, pushes the boundaries of cycling animation with an austere tale about a lonesome woodcutter who appears to live a simple existence in the woods.
However, some unknown sadness seems to plague his everyday life. Perhaps, the two burial crosses outside of his home symbolize loss?
While the film doesn’t necessarily center around cycling, the bike nevertheless serves as a center-piece throughout this strange and solemn story.
As noted in the credits, Oak went on to garner numerous accolades for Ceulebrouck, earning himself recognition from film festivals across the world in Brussels, Canada, Holland, Australia and Uruguay.
