Director: Rodrigo Blaas


A tattered voodoo doll slowly wakes up from its slumber and realises that it is next in line for being stabbed through the heart by the pitiless High Priest of Voodoo. On its loosely-woven, plain canvas little body, a prominent scarlet "X" marks the tiny heart; if the Priest pierces it, it will be the end and a new rag doll will take its place. When you are so small and insignificant, it takes a lot of courage to defy your oppressors, nevertheless, has the doll what it takes to save himself and his fellows? Written by Nick Riganas

27 August 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a perfect animation. the touching story, the precious details, the exoticism of a fairy tale with powerful message , all is more than great. and the most important thing the use of CGI for a film who seems not only realistic but like-life. dolls. a human. and an old ritual. and a gesture who change everything. Sebastian's Voodoo is one rare films with the gift to become an experience for its public. because it use a taboo theme for a magnificent art product. because it reminds importance of generosity and love and absence of selfish. sure, it sounds bizarre, but I think it is one of the most beautiful Christian films. because the well known/ignored message of the Savior is present in the splendid manner. and this small detail does it a real great film.
