"Faith" is the first part in the Toronto folk surrealist's trilogy made in collaboration with artist Davide Di Saro.

- Aug 4, 2016

Toronto folk surrealist Ronley Teper and her band of merry freaks The Lipliners have quietly been tinkering away on a project with Montreal-based musician, director, and animator Davide Di Saro over the last 8 years. It's grown into a grand tapestry, Boschian in scope, that reflects the inhabitants of Teper's creative universe. Today, we get our first peak inside.

"Faith" is the start in a trilogy of animated short films. Entirely hand drawn, it's remarkable for its insane detail, tremendous scale, and rich mythology, embarking on a fantastical flight in tandem with Teper's own.

"The adventure unfolds among a living landscape representing the paradoxical friction of force between our real world and dreams to achieve," Teper explains to Chart Attack. "Within this world we gracefully follow a fantastical character roaming with his soul, toward an unalloyed river which streams silver shimmers of faith and optimistic peace."

"Ultimately the adventurous soul, embarks on a floating mountain disappearing in the distance while we learn how to respectfully pose an eternal farewell to what we have left behind."

Ronley Teper's Lipliners will release the full trilogy digitally on September 2. Once they're all out, you can find them here.
