Mammuten (eng: The mammoth) is a 5-minute-long poetic short film made in collaboration with the Finnish-Swedish poet and musician Rickard Eklund. The film was originally made for the web based literary magazine Tidskriften Kontradiktion, which in the fall of 2023 released an issue with the theme meaning.
The film is made in stop motion technique with biological materials – mostly charcoal drawings, and consists all in all of about 1500 individual pictures. The film is accompanied by a poetic text (in Swedish), written by Rickard Eklund and read out loud by Li Taiga. Rickard Eklund also stands for the films' soundscape.
