To die by your side…

and if a double-decker bus /crashes into us /to die by your side /is such a heavenly way to die /and if a ten-ton truck /kills the both of us /to die by your side /well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine

Especially when you are a fictional character popping out from the illustrated first-edition covers of Macbeth and Dracula.

Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die by Your Side) is a short animation film made of 3,000 pieces of felt, all cut by hand by
Olympia Le-Tan and directed by Spike Jonze and Simon Cahn.

The story is set on a bookshelf of the famous Parisian bookstore, Shakespeare and Company and displays the encounter of two cut out figures wanting to be together.
