The paintings of Salzburg’s Residenzgalerie are brought to life on film, joined together in a narrative context to tell a coherent story about transience and new beginnings.
A butterfly, symbol of the human soul, brings the paintings to life, fluttering through various stages of life. From birth to death, the butterfly remains a subtle protagonist in the background and a silent observer at the same time.
