Moon Garden


When a little girl has a terrible accident and slips into a coma, she finds herself thrust into a darkly surreal industrial dreamworld. Haunted by a nightmarish spectre that feeds off her tears, she must follow her mother’s radio-static voice to find her way back to consciousness. Shot on expired 35mm film stock with vintage rehoused lenses, MOON GARDEN is a fantastical odyssey and a visionary, handcrafted, and fully practical work of art that shows how a child can shine light even in the darkest places.

Main Trailer


  • "Does a fantastic job creating a novel world that combines stop motion, forward and backward moving timelapses, and paper cut-out animation with a simple, but incredibly effective monster, as well as sets that are just as beautiful as they are frightening."
    - ScreenAnarchy
  • "Whilst Moon Garden’s visuals incite nightmares, the emotional weight hits like a sledgehammer. The combination ensure a film that will linger. Mad God with a pounding, bleeding emotional heart, MOON GARDEN is an unforgettable experience."
    - THN
  • "A dazzling use of various effects and animation techniques to tell a child's-eye-view story of purgatory, or something awfully close to it."
