Leviathan is a stop-motion animation video with abstract narration and pop imagery. The main theme of the video is the claustrophobia caused by the urban environment, the repression with which people deal with their lives, which is here compared with the symmetry and the so called “safe” atmosphere of the suburbs. The peak of this delirium is rationalised as a sea monster, Leviathan, invoked by the people themselves, a cannibalistic version of their own repressions and phobias. This video is also made as a homage to old Horror movies and to the master of horror George Romero.
