Novalis

This animated short film bridges family-friendly animation and arthouse cinema with the story of a lost orphan trying to find shelter in a desolate German village in the 1890's, where he finds the giant robot creature called Novalis, that seems to be threatening and dangerous, until something more human is revealed.
