Lanterna is a student animated short film set in Venice during the annual Carnevale. It explores Venice’s culture of glass blowing, venetian masks, and gondola riding. The addition of magical glass lanterns that house fire sprites weaves itself into the City of Bridges and Canals, giving the film its fantastical setting. It is a story about questioning tradition, freedom and the importance of being true to yourself.
