The new video by Kadavre Exquis, 'Childhood of a Circle,' tells a delightful tale about a creature who nothing ever happens to. Reminiscent of the artwork in "The Last Unicorn" and in the anime films of Hayao Miyazaki, Childhood of a Circle is a composed of soft and detailed animation that articulates the narrative in a fashion that is both welcoming and compelling.

The film follows a creature named Archibald who lives in the forest. Living in harmony with his surroundings, Archibald can't help but find himself bored because as the video states, "nothing extraordinary ever happened to him." Until one day when a ball comes down to earth Archibald sets out on a journey to find it, taking him across lands he would never have ventured to on his own. The end of the short rewards us and Archibald with a heart warming conclusion to a enchanting tale.
