Forlorn fish express their alienation through song, a pair of pigeons visit a zoo without animals, and a lonely fox has an enigmatic encounter with the new rabbit next door—welcome to the startlingly surreal, delicately bittersweet world of Swedish stop-motion animator Niki Lindroth von Bahr, whose hyper-detailed miniatures are at once uncanny and strikingly lifelike.
