Broken Spell is an animated video about the concepts of love and climate.

A young and beautiful couple are in love but the relationship cannot be consummated, like in the story of Romeo and Juliet.Catastrophic climate change has destroyed the couple’s love.

The lovers can be seen as a metaphor for our symbiotic relationship to the planet. We love it, but mercilessly abuse and devour it.In the video, the lovers are constantly surrounded by annihilation as buildings collapse around them and tornadoes rage and the earth cracks beneath them.
