  • In this animated environmental parable, we find a people living in harmony with nature, until carelessness leads to the ravens? revenge. We follow a boy?s courageous journey to the spirit world to find the only one who can save his village from the resulting darkness - the Lord of the sky. An artistic unity of form and content, Lord of the Sky is a combination of 3-D models, puppets, special effects and cut-out paper animation. Its intricate, beautifully rendered drawings reflect the natural environment and cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest.
